From some testing, this looks like a Tcl/Tk bug, fixed somewhere between 8.5.9 and 8.5.11: Python 3.2.5 which shipped with Tcl/Tk 8.5.9 shows this bug; Python 3.3.5 which shipped with Tcl/Tk 8.5.11 does not, and Python 2.7 built with Tcl/Tk 8.5.11 doesn't show it.  Tcl/Tk 8.6.1 is also free of the bug.

Benjamin, what's your take on updating the version of Tcl/Tk shipped with the next Python 2.7 Windows installer?  Updating to a newer 8.5 is just a matter of changing paths in the buildbot scripts (and making sure whoever does the installer since Martin has retired knows about it); updating to 8.6 also requires some minor updates to PCbuild/pyproject.vsprops, but seems to work fine.
