Under Python 2.7.11 (Win 7), saving of the IDLE shell output produces no file if the output contains non-ASCII characters, e.g. after doing (before this, it does work):

>>> print u'sp\xe4m'

When saving (generally), the cursor also moves to the next line.

Maybe the default file type for the shell save dialog(s) can be changed from 'Python Files (*.py, *.pyw)' to the other entry 'Text files (*.txt)' as the resulting file will normally not be a valid Python file (e.g. due to '>>>' prompts).
