A different console message, Shell window not closed

Python 3.4.0a0 (default:bcfb6888fb8d, Apr 18 2013, 19:47:33) 
>>> import idlelib.idle
Exception in Tkinter callback

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get'

There is, of course, no 3.4 installation icon for starting Idle without a console. However
D:\Python\dev\cpython\PCbuild>pythonw_d -m idlelib

No message, Shell closes.

D:\Python\dev\cpython\PCbuild>python_d -m idlelib
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'focus_set'

Message (different from other method of starting), Shell does not close.
