Thanks a lot.

I don't quite understand what's going on there.  To the OP: when you say 
MacPython 2.6, from where did you install it or did you build it 
yourself?  In OS X 10.6, Apple ships framework versions of both Tcl/Tk 
8.4 and 8.5.  Be aware that the 8.5 version shipped by Apple is known to 
be very problematic with IDLE and Tkinter.  If building youself, install 
the ActiveState Tcl/Tk 8.5 or stick to 8.4.  The most recent python.org 
OS X installer for 2.6 was 2.6.5 
(http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.6.5/) and should work just 
fine with the Apple-supplied Tcl/Tk 8.4 or with ActiveState Tcl/Tk 8.4.

I took MacPython 2.6 from here:

http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.6.6/python-2.6.6-macosx10.3.dmg


Also I downloaded Tcl/Tk from here http://www.kyngchaos.com/software/frameworks
to using the gis software Qgis....

May be here the issue?

I can't reproduce the problem and I really don't see how installing that 
Tcl/Tk framework could cause the problem by itself.  The version of Tcl 
and Tk to dynamically load is added to the executable at link time when 
the installer is being built.  It should look something like this:

$ cd /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6
$ cd ./lib/python2.6/lib-dynload/
$ otool -L _tkinter.so 
_tkinter.so (architecture ppc):
   /Library/Frameworks/Tcl.framework/Versions/8.4/Tcl (compatibility 
version 8.4.0, current version 8.4.19)
   /Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/Versions/8.4/Tk (compatibility 
version 8.4.0, current version 8.4.19)
   /usr/lib/libmx.A.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 
47.1.0)
   /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current 
version 88.3.10)
_tkinter.so (architecture i386):
   /Library/Frameworks/Tcl.framework/Versions/8.4/Tcl (compatibility 
version 8.4.0, current version 8.4.19)
   /Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/Versions/8.4/Tk (compatibility 
version 8.4.0, current version 8.4.19)
   /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current 
version 88.3.10)

Note the absolute path to the framework.  If that version of the 
framework does not exist at that location, the dynamic loader falls back 
to the OS X standard location /System/Library/Frameworks ...

If you've only installed that one extra Tcl/Tk version, things should 
look something like this:

$ ls -l /Library/Frameworks/Tcl.framework/Versions/
total 8
drwxr-xr-x  5 root  admin  272 Jul 27  2010 8.5/
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  admin    3 Jun 24 13:31 Current@ -> 8.5

lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel    3 Nov  7  2010 Current@ -> 8.5

If not, something's wrong.  It's especially odd that you would see a 
problem with IDLE.app since it is not influenced by shell initialization 
steps.  Do you have something set in ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist ?  
Also, try launching that idle from a shell:

$ /usr/local/bin/idle2.6

This is the result of the test you suggested to me. What do you think?

I'm not sure where you got that version of Python from but the output 
from otool is definitely not that of a _tkinter.so from the standard 
python.org 2.6.6 installer and it explains the results you are seeing. 
 If you want to stick with the python.org Python 2.6, I suggest you 
download the latest installer from here:
   http://python.org/download/releases/2.6.6/
and re-install.

Good luck.
