Thinking more, there are two issue here.  One is the fact that Idle stops when fed a filename with astral chars.  This *is* a bug and should be fixed in all versions, even if that fix is to display a message box saying that Idle cannot work properly with such files.

The second is the one I addressed in the first message, the inability to work properly with files.  Fixing that would obviate the need to display a message, but might be more work, especially on 2.7.

Kamisky, if you launch Idle and then try to open the file, do you see the name in the Open dialog?  I presume that if you do, and select it, Idle would stop just as it did in your report.
