Running IDLE on Windows typically uses pythonw.exe. Unfortunately any error messages written to stderr will cause IDLE to terminate abruptly without an error message. This is due to __stderr__ == None.

Attached is a patch against 3.3a0 for idle.pyw to redirect stderr messages to a dialog box. This allows IDLE to keep running so that the user can at least save their work before closing IDLE.
