I am seeing this as well. It does not repro 100% of the time, but frequently enough that its hard to get anything done. My repro is a little simpler and might help understanding the fix.

Python 3.3

I start IDLE normally from the shortcut in the install.
Ctrl-N to open and edit window.
Ctrl-O to open a file.
Select file and then Idle exits.

As mentioned, using the menu to open the file seems to work more reliably. I've not had a crash that way.
