I don't know whether memory difference between us is due to IDLEX or Windows version or something else, but I don't really care.  The IDLE doc has a section "IDLE-console differences".  It should gain a paragraph explain the difference between memory-limited tk.Text-based Shell and limited-lines consoles.  For Command Prompt, the buffer defaults to a pathetic 300 lines, which is not enough for the CPython test suite output.  The max is 9999 for those who discover how to enlarge it.  No limit is an advantage for most uses, but not for one who fills up memory.

I will also think about a sentence to add to the introductory section about development versus production runs.
