[Chimera-users] Chimera quits when IDLE window closed

Hi Mark,

  Yeah, in fact, in all daily builds (Mac, Windows, Linux) Chimera 
closes when you close the IDLE (Python shell) window.  This is a problem 
introduced by updating from Python 2.5 to 2.6, not a Mac Cocoa problem.  
It is default IDLE behavior to raise SystemExit when it closes and 
Chimera has to do something special to avoid that bad behavior.  The 
special Chimera fix for that used by older Chimera versions no longer works.
