Open a Python file with IDLE and F5 it. Turn on debugger ([DEBUG ON]), F5 again ([DEBUG ON]), and close the debugger ([DEBUG OFF]). The shell is now completely locked and must be closed (with a 'The program is still running, want to kill it?' message).

I have confirmed that this happens on both 3.2 and .3, and it also happens when you close any active debug window.

Hi Jimbo,

Clicking "quit" first avoids this problem, but I do agree that it does need to be fixed.

This is also a duplicate of issue15348. I am closing this issue in favor of that one. Please feel free to add yourself to the nosy list on that issue.
