tkSimpleDialog displays blank rectangle and hangs with version 2.7.  Works fine on version 2.6.  In attached program, click on button labeled "Press this Button" which will call tkSimpleDialog.

I confirmed that the problem does not exist under Win XP using python 2.7.2.

The problem is not with Python 2.7 per se. It's a problem when running on OS X with a Python linked with the current Aqua Cocoa Tk 8.5, such as the ActiveState Tcl/Tk.  Your test case works OK when using the current 32-bit-only Python 2.7.2 from which links with the older Aqua Carbon Tk 8.4.  Unfortunately, this is not the first of these kinds of problems reported.

Closing because this issue is a bug in Tk, not a bug in Python.
