By design, IDLE should only allow one editor instance per file for a given python-IDLE process.  "$ python3" opens a new python-IDLE process, independent of existing processes. It is possible that double-clicking multiple times opens a new IDLE process each time, without a new Shell.  You could check the process list in Terminal. (I have forgotten the unix command and barely know bash.)
