I am on a Mac running Mavericks 10.9.4. Whenever I press shift+command+s to save a file as a specific name, it opens two windows. But, if I "Save As" through the button in the menu bar, it only opens one window.

This is due to a bug in earlier versions of Cocoa Tk 8.5.x, originally documented in Issue11055.  Unfortunately, Apple is still shipping such a version in current versions of OS X.  One solution is to install a newer version of Tk 8.5, such as ActiveTcl 8.5.15 and use a version of Python that links with it, such as from the OS X installers (currently 2.7.8).  More details here:
