Python 3.1.1 built from source. Tk version 8.4, Tcl version 8.4.

Idle 2.6.4 (also built from source), works correctly (executes force-open-completions).

Test case:
- Start idle3
- press Ctrl-Space in the IDLE shell
- idle crashes, and a traceback is written to stdout:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/idle3", line 6, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.1/idlelib/", line 1420, in main
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.1/tkinter/", line 1009, in mainloop
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode bytes in position 0-1: illegal encoding
