I was playing with some unicode chars on Python 3.2 (x64 on Windows 7), but when pasted a char bigger than 0xFFFF, IDLE crashes without any error message.

Example (works fine):
>>> '\U000104a2'

But, if I try to paste the above char, the window will instantly close.

The interpreter uses 2-bytes per char (UTF-16) and I don't know if that's causing the problem (as side note, why don't the default Windows build uses 4-bytes char?).

I can't check now with my Ubuntu install (UTF-32) if the problem persists.
