Both of the following cases give the correct popup help information:

float.hex(

And:

t = type("test_hex", (), {"hex": lambda nothing: None})
t.hex(

The reason your case fails is because IDLE doesn't evaluate `1.3` to a float and does indeed use the normal `hex` method help (as you established with your `list` test).
