This is a 'ancient, buggy tcl/tk 8.5.9 on OS11' issue, not an IDLE issue.  Only 8.6.10 has a chance with OS11, and even that is a bit flakey.  But I have no issues so far running 3.9.1 and IDLE with the Universal2 OS11 build from on Mohave.

What happens if you run 'python3.9' on a command line?  What about 'python 3.9 -c "import tkinter; tkinter.Tk()"'?

Ned & Ronald: I expect we should close this as 3rd party (Apple, Active State (tcl/tk), and homebrew).  Do either of you want to add anything?
