[docs] [issue10739] Subprocess behavior on Windows

Ross Lagerwall report at bugs.python.org
Mon Dec 20 08:29:17 CET 2010

New submission from Ross Lagerwall <rosslagerwall at gmail.com>:

On Windows, creating a subprocess does not work when stdin (or stdout or stderr) is set as a file object created from socket.makefile(). An IOError is thrown.

This works fine on Unix so I assume it is a platform limitation rather than a Python bug.

If this is so then this should be documented under the subprocess module.
