    I started up IDLE today and the bottom of the window was off of the
    screen. I could not find a way to resize it. I closed all apps and
    rebooted. After rebooting, 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/

    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/

    apply(widget.__init__, (self,)+args, kwargs)
    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/

    Widget.__init__(self, master, 'text', cnf, kw)
    File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/

    (widgetName, self._w) + extra + self._options(cnf))
    _tkinter.TclError: bad screen distance "60gill"

    Thanks for any assistance

    Find your .idlerc directory and rename/move/delete it.

    If you're on Windows, this should be located at C:\Documents and
    Settings\<your username>\.idlerc

    Otherwise (Linux/OSX/etc.) it should be located in your homedir.
