Thanks for the report: yet another Aqua Tk oddity.  This one is a problem in Tk itself. It can be seen using a recent Wish 8.4 with a simple Tcl script to create a help menu.  The relevant Tk bug is here:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1884667&group_id=12997&atid=112997

For the record, I can reproduce the problem when using a Tkinter linked with current ActiveState Tcl/Tk 8.4.19 on either OS X 10.5 or 10.6 or with the Apple Tcl/Tk 8.4 on OS X 10.6.  All of those are Tk 8.4.19.  The problem does not appear when using the Apple-supplied Tcl/Tk 8.4 (8.4.7) on OS X 10.5.  It also does not appear when using Tkinter linked with Aqua Tk 8.5 (as is the case with the 3.2 64-bit/32-bit python.org installer).  Unfortunately, there is nothing Tkinter or IDLE can do to work around this.
