The "About IDLE" and "Preferences" dialogs on IDLE are accompanied by a small black window titled "idle" when IDLE is run agains the tip of Tk 8.6 on macOS 10.14. This is likely owing to the multiple changes in Tk to accommodate the Mac's API changes on Mojave. I suspect the dialog's [wm transient] implementation is part of the issue; the parent windows for the dialog are not hidden when run against the Tk tip, and thus they have this ugly display. Hopefully the fix is not too complicated.
