Alaaf, you are cheating, right?
You must have known, partially, last August. ;-)

Yes, I tried this and I get the same problem.
Have to admit that I'm not a regular IDLE user.
Seriously, I have no idea what's going on.
Seriously, I have also no idea why Python must
try to pickle something, to compute 3*4 ???

Everything works with Python 2.2. I expect something
has changed dramatically with Idle, and there is some
compatability issue with all the new pickling support that
we had to add for Python 2.3. Eeek, how do I debug that!

Forget it. it is just a table of exported names which might help
with debugging.
