After using idle-test/ and individual htests when editing files, a few updates are needed.

1. Improve the docstring for; add info about "# htest #" and #2 below.

2. Use Toplevel(parent) instead of Tk() for test-specific childs windows of the main, master window.  Currently, for some tests, such as CallTipWindow, the focus does not properly shift to the test window. Closing the master window first leaves the test window open.  Closing the test window second then causes several tcl errors (printed to console if available), a Windows message, and an Idle freeze of 5 seconds or more before Idle works again.  The change in this initial patch fixes the focus, non-close, error, and hang problems.  One click and the test window is ready to go; one click on the master and both go away.

3. Coding style issues -- I prefer to use winfo_rootx/y, as done elsewhere in Idle, to using re (close call).  For CallTipWindow, the inner class is not needed now, if it ever was.

As far as I can tell, the entire diff in @htest-34-2.diff was pushed.  My comment about 'up to first line of grep' was correct alphabetically but confusing because files with a '# htest #' section were not completely alphabetical in the file.  I need to review current code in light of this issue and a couple of others.
