Theis the first time I've submitted bug reports to's 
development efforts, though I've been using Python for many years.  I 
don't know what the procedures are for followup to emails like you 
sent me, and given that the address is, I'm 
not even sure who -- if anyone -- reads a response like this.  Please 
tell me how to follow up and anything else you'd like to suggest 
about how I could help more effectively.

I retried IDLE it with Python 2.6rc1 and  got a very helpful and 
elaborate error message about not being able to start the subprocess, 
what port it was trying to connect to, and a pointer to information 
about running it without a subprocess.  I had my Mac's Security 
Firewall set to allow all incoming connections, so I don't know why 
it was refusing this one, but I changed the settings to "Set access 
for specific services and applications" and added idle26 and idle30. 
IDLE 2.6rc1 now works.

However, I checked out 3.0 sources from the Subversion repository 
yesterday, but am still getting a problem, though a different one, 
with IDLE30:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
   File "/usrlocal/lib/python3.0/idlelib/", line 76, in main
AttributeError: 'Thread' object has no attribute 'set_daemon'

Should I just assume that the development problem will be taking care 
of things like this, or is it helpful for me to report them when I 
encounter them?

Thanks for your response.
