Running Python 3.1/ IDLE, which was installed on top of a Python 2.5.4
install, Mac OSX 10.4

This seems like such an obvious bug, but I can't find it in the current
list of issues - so I suspect that it may not be reproducible on other
computers, but it's certainly reproducible on my laptop.

If I run a module with (any?) syntax error (for example,

for i in range(10) #missing semicolon
    print i

the interpreter will catch it and send you to fix it. Then, any
subsequent attempts to run that same module will freeze IDLE. The
problem doesn't occur if you run a different module.
