Tried it in a few versions on a couple computers, and was unable to reproduce.

Subject: [python-win32] Serious bug in pywin32?
Today I ran PythonWin and accidentally typed 'python' at the interactive
prompt out of habit, since I often use the cmd prompt instead. PythonWin
immediately crashed. I re-ran PythonWin and tried again. Same crash. Ran
again...typed 'import os'. No crash, but the interactive prompt hung.
Anything typed at the interactive prompt now hangs.
I have removed and reinstalled pywin32. I even removed and reinstalled my
entire Python 2.6.1 installation (including deleting any Python-related keys
in the registry). It still doesn't work :'(
Python itself (run from the command line) gives the expected:
Python 2.6.1 (r261:67517, Dec 4 2008, 16:51:00) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)]
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
NameError: name 'python' is not defined
Any ideas how to get PythonWin working again? Anyone else see the same
issue (don't try this on your favorite system). I will file a bug on
python-win32 mailing list
python-win32 at python.org
