I just updated my Macbook to Mohave.  As implied, I do not see this on installed 3.7.1 with 8.6.8.  But this is a heads-up for future releases.  Someone with both a Mac Python development environment + tip 8.6 would have to look at this now.

When the packaged tcl/tk in the repository is updated, idlelib/idle_test/ should be run (in addition to test/ to see if the new tcl/tk introduces any visual artifacts.  Htest passes 'htest=True' to ConfigDialog.__init__, but that only affects dialog placement.   Kevin, can you run htest on your system?

I don't understand "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,"  The transient call is 'self.transient(parent)' and the parent is the editor-based window, which is not blank and which should not be hidden.  If tk adds a new 3rd blank window, that seems like a tk bug to me.
