There are a few issues here.

X11 is not installed by *default* on Mac OS X (it is supplied separately) so it doesn't provide an "out of the box" solution.

Starting IDLE as 32bit alone doesn't solve the problem as it launches a subprocess and you have to ensure that is launched as a 32bit process as well.

I think *clearly* documenting that the Mac OS X 10.6 version *requires* Activestate Tcl / Tk 8.5 is the best solution (assuming I am correct in thinking that using the Activestate distribution solves the problem). This is really a duplicate of issue 10969 by the way. See the discussion there for suggested ways to clarify the dependency on the download page.
