Python Shell (IDLE) Lag

    Hey everyone, just a quick general question about using the main python
    shell (I'm using IDLE on Windows to be exact).

    Whenever I print some really long output to the screen (> 3000
    characters or so), my shell will start lagging very badly. I'm not
    sure if the shell keeps some memory dedicated to this already outputted
    data or what, but either way I can't seme to unlock these resources.
    Restarting just the shell doesn't help, so I end up having to closing
    IDLE completely and restarting it. Needless to say, this is a pain
    when I've got a lot of commands in the shell already I want to repeat
    because I lose them all.

    Anyone know of any way to free up these resources without restarting
    IDLE?

    Thanks in advance.

    Just a little addendum... this lag only happens when the output is a
    very long continuous string. If I print out 3000 or so LINES of output
    there's no problem, its only when it's one long continuous string.
