I think this is a new bug, present in Python 3.8.5 but not present in 3.8.3.

Steps to reproduce:

    * $ touch xyzpdq.py             # Creates new file, zero bytes in length
    * $ python3.8 -m idlelib.idle xyzdpq.py
    * Enter text:   print('hello world')
    * Attempt to save the file with Cmd-S
    * This seems to be unrecoverable and results
      in losing all the code that was entered.

---------------- example session ---------------
~ $ cd tmp
~/tmp $ touch qwerty.py
~/tmp $ python3.8 -m idlelib.idle qwerty.py
