Running the following from an edit window with F5 in IDLE 3.0c3 causes a
complete crash. Both edit window and shell window disappear.

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

The is copied from what IDLE said to add when I previously ran file with
non-ascii char and no cookie. Same if add pass statement.

Copying the same directly into the shell window appears to work fine.
