If a KeyboardInterrupt occurs while an IDLE calltip is being displayed,
the calltip will persist until a new calltip event. The calltip should
be removed immediately in this case.

Hi Zack, thanks for this!

This doesn't go far enough, actually; we should make sure to close the calltip in other cases too, such as restarting the shell or hitting return to running a statement / block.

I verified problem for KeyboardInterrupt and RestartShell but not for a newline that actually runs the statement.  In my experiments, if a newline in inserted instead of running, the cursor remains within a call and the calltip should not disappear.

On the issue, Tal pointed out that SyntaxError leaves a calltip after a new >>> prompt.  Also fixed.
