Hi Vlastimil,

Can you repeat your test case while running IDLE from the command prompt and report the error you see?

    python -m idlelib.idle

IDLE closes suddenly on Windows because IDLE uses pythonw.exe which has no stdout or stderr. When Tkinter encounters an error and tries to write to stderr, an error is raised in the Tkinter eventloop and the eventloop terminates.
