Do you mean this error occurs when any little  python script of the type

x = raw_input('enter something')

EOFs if run inside xemacs/win32?  Just trying to understand here...

Though I'm afraid I'll have precious little to offer on this front.
It's a bummer to see how much variation there is in behavior in the
Emacses across platforms: while things seem to more or less 'just
work' under linux, they've proven surprisingly tricky both under OSX
and win32...
