Unable to update ToolValidator

I have attempted to update the Tool Validator (ArcGIS 10.0) code as per the instructions within the Help file. However, it is not behaving as expected. When I choose the option to "Edit" on the Validation tab of the Properties dialog, IDLE will open with a file called "xxScript.py", which is created in a temp folder under my user profile. I made changes in this file and saved (as per the ESRI Instructions), but when I apply the changes I get nothing. And when attempting to edit it again, it simple created a new copy called "xxScript2.py", which was a copy of the original.

Is there a place/naming convention I should be saving this file after modifying so that it can be referenced?
