IDLE problem :-(

P: n/a
I don't know if this has been a problem with other people using IDLE
but when i press the home key then the cursor jumps to the beginning
of the line and not after the prompt. If google prints the right
indentation then here how i want the IDLE prompt to work ->

|>>> |(r,b,g).__class__
^ ^
^ ^-----> want cursor here instead.
cursor
goes
here

Any work around??
Thank you.

If you're on windows, you can try PythonWin instead. The first time you
hit home, the cursor will go your second |. If you then hit home again,
the cursor will go to your first |.

Yeah i got the PythonWin and it does what you say but i am so used to
IDLE ( which was created originally by GvR). Its a different kind of
feeling when you are a sort of Python "Evangelist". ;-)
Moreover if i am right, this was mentioned as a sort of #fixme in
Python's source??

Thanks.
