With Python 2.7, but not 3.1 or 2.6, IDLE has two "Preferences..." menu's
on OSX.

This is on a OSX 10.5 system, with an installation of Tcl/Tk 8.4 in
/Library/Frameworks.

Apparently, also caused by using the newer Tcl 8.4 in
/Library/Frameworks/Tcl.

This was caused by code in macosxSupport.py that picked the branch for
the wrong Tk release because "[8, 4, 21] < (8, 4, 21)".

Committed a fix in r72946

Supporting multiple versions of Tk sucks, and that's without trying to
support Tk 8.5 as well (at least not in the binary installers)

Appearently support for the Cocoa port of Tk requires even more
specialcasing...
