The placement of Tk windows is dependent on the version of Tk and platform window manager.  The Aqua Tk version on Mac OS X run as a separate GUI application process and so, as is customary, the focus and window stacking does not change when it is launched.  The platform-independent way to ensure the newly-created Tk window is on top is to set the "topmost" attribute on the root window:

   tk = _tkinter.create(os.environ['DISPLAY'], 'wish', 'Tk', 1)'update')'wm', 'attributes', '.', '-topmost', '1')

I suppose we could add something like that to IDLE on OS X when it creates its initial shell window.
