Idle is not unique.  Several other apps ported from unix also put .xyx files in the home directory on Windows. What is unusual, if not unique, about IDLE is the need to run multiple versions. If .idlerc is moved, already released versions will not be able to access it.  I am not ready to make a break yet.  In any case, moving it to a subdirectory of $HOME will not solve this issue, which is not being able to write to $HOME, and it therefore a different issue.
