on Ubuntu 8.04 - 
I downloaded the sources, then:
./configure --prefix=$HOME
make && make install

in ~/bin/idle3 when I press Ctrl+Space (according to the "Edit" menu,
should show completions) idle crashes with the following traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/homes/yinon/bin/idle3", line 5, in <module>
  File "/homes/yinon/lib/python3.1/idlelib/", line 1420, in main

UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode bytes in position 0-1:
