As said multiple times on bpo-13153, IDLE exits with a traceback that is visible when it is started from a command line (python -m idlelib). It usually ends with
File "F:\dev\3x\lib\tkinter\init.py", line 1420, in mainloop
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xed in position 3: invalid continuation byte
