I'm no IDLE or Tcl/Tk user, either. But I had Tcl problems,
before. What I really would hate is to have to build the Tcl
stuff and debug that.
What I'm probably going to try tomorrow is to disable all
pikcling extensions at all and see if it runs, then.
Then I will re-enable them, one after the other.
My guess is that something gets pickled because it shows
up as pickleable, through introspection.
Maybe a special case is hit again (like with cell objects)
that needs to use the ternary __reduce__ protocol. I don't know.

I need sleep.  ciao - chris
