The Idle Editor or Idle Python Shell crashes if ` character is typed in. Character looks like an ` with underscore. 

How to repeat this problem:
1. In OSX open any .py file or the Idle Shell with Idle.
2. Switch to german keyboard layout
3. Type the letter by pressing shift and the  +=  button, left of the delete button. (Keyboard hardware layout is US)

I attached only the crash report of version 3.6.3. This issue happens also to all previous versions. I didn't checked with versions higher than 3.6.3.

Info from shell (not crashed yet):
Python 3.6.3 (v3.6.3:2c5fed86e0, Oct  3 2017, 00:32:08) 
[GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5666) (dot 3)] on darwin
