That's not a bug, Idle is shipped in another rpm. I do not want to have
a desktop file appearing when any python software is installed, as this
will only confuse most users that do not care about crust, idle or stuff
like that. Even I , as the python maintainer and a python developper, I
never click on the icon ( nor use it ). Install tkinter-apps if you want
