IDLE under Cygwin doesn't show toolbar menu

Just downloaded and installed the latest Cygwin distribution which
includes python 2.3.4. IDLE runs fine but for some reason the toolbar
menu doesn't show up.
Like, by default, it starts shell window, but no toolbar. If I type

idle foobar.py

it brings both shell and editor windows, but once again, no toolbar on
either window -- which renders the edtior quite disfunctional.

Just want to check if anyone else ever ran into this problem and what
was the workaround -- before I contact Cygwin folks.

TIA.

Any help debugging this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi,

I reported this behavior too quite a while back, but no 'easy' fix was
available, though there is a 'work-around', of sorts.

If you start idle without the server (-n option, I _think_) things
work as expected.

I've seen this too.

I believe this is a long-known problem with no solution so far. You
could check that in the Python project bug list at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/python - I think I saw it there.
