X11-based Tk follows general X11 practice with regard to text pasting.  See for some background.  Old school X11 users expect pasting to work that way.  This is yet another instance where Tk attempts to conform to the platform it is running on.  I recommend closing this issue as X11 Tk (and, hence, IDLE) has behaved like this forever and changing it would be painful for many current X11 IDLE users.
