I can confirm that the existing behavior of IDLE prohibits clicking on the scroll bar on Windows (but not Linux). Clicking on an item in the window closes it without actually selecting the clicked item. This is true on both Windows and Linux.

On Windows, the <FocusOut> event is generated when selecting the completion window, causing it to close. On Linux with Gnome3.4, the scroll bar is clickable without closing the window.

By removing "<FocusOut>" from HIDE_SEQUENCES in, the completion window can now take focus. However, the completion window will need some work since key presses in the focused window doesn't change the text selection.
