I've found this to be a serious usability regression and think it should be reverted right-away.  It makes IDLE unsuitable for evening showing turtle demos to kids.  For adults in my classes, it was also confusing because unlike the old restart-bar it fails to make a clean distinction between sessions and making it clear that old variable definitions have be forgotten.  The issue is even more acute because cmd-p can cycle through statements in previous sessions.
