    Using OS X 10.5.5
    Python 2.5.1

    IDLE was working, then all of a sudden, the window size went off of
    the screen.... could not resize it. I closed IDLE and rebooted and
    now IDLE will not start. Below is the Traceback

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/bin/
    IDLE", line 5, in <module>
    main()
    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/idlelib/PyShell.py", line 1402, in main
    shell = flist.open_shell()
    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/idlelib/PyShell.py", line 275, in open_shell
    self.pyshell = PyShell(self)
    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/idlelib/PyShell.py", line 811, in __init__
    OutputWindow.__init__(self, flist, None, None)
    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/idlelib/OutputWindow.py", line 16, in __init__
    EditorWindow.__init__(self, *args)
    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/idlelib/EditorWindow.py", line 121, in __init__
    height=idleConf.GetOption('main','EditorWindow','height') )
    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/idlelib/MultiCall.py", line 299, in __init__
    apply(widget.__init__, (self,)+args, kwargs)
    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 2828, in __init__
    Widget.__init__(self, master, 'text', cnf, kw)
    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/
    python2.5/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1930, in __init__
    (widgetName, self._w) + extra + self._options(cnf))
    _tkinter.TclError: bad screen distance "60gill"

    Any assistance in getting this back up and running would be great

    Thanks
