Please understand that python-dev is not the place to get free consulting. If you are willing to investigate somewhat further, try to understand the problem, and propose patches, then I would be willing to review the patches, comment on their correctness, and perhaps integrate them into the Python CVS. As it stands, I can personally take no more time to help with HP-UX problems for the near future (say, ten years :-)
I do recall that there are serious problems with pseudo-terminals in Python and HP-UX, so yes, we have heard of this before. If I knew a solution, it were applied to Python already.
Please understand that this perhaps hostile-sounding response is just my personal view; if somebody else responds more gracefully, just ignore me.
