Currently users can open multiple instances of one file in IDLE. Sometimes this leads to confusion and may cause loss of data. I'm not aware of any benefits of this behavior and I think it's better to be prevented by IDLE.

Here are the steps to recreate the situation:
1. Create a file named ""
2. Right-click on the file and open it with IDLE
3. Add some text
4. Goto 2.
5. Save and close both open IDLE windows.
(Your work on the first saved file will be lost.)
