1. On 2.7/3.1 multiple copies of IDLE can be 
simultaneously, so the -n switch used in the 
Windows Start menu shortcut with "Edit with 
IDLE" should be eliminated.

2. On 3.1, the idle script has been renamed 

This may interact with the Win installer 

These changes shouldn't be backported to 26-maint
or 30-maint.

I'd offer a patch, but, though I see suspects, 
I'm not sure exactly where this lives.

The -n switch is now removed in r72335, r72336.

I'm not sure what the necessary action is on the idle script. It's not
used on Windows; it isn't even installed. So unassigning myself.

Closing since this problem seems to be fixed.
