[New-bugs-announce] [issue16579] .pyw disturb multiprocessing behavior

New submission from Alex stein:

I made a software synchronizing every 2 seconds files from the network through SSH using Paramiko library.

The software works normally on Linux and Windows 32 and 64 bits (never tried on Mac).

At the office, I use Windows XP 32 bits:
By comfort I made a link on the desktop pointing to the __init__.py file. I had no problems. Then I switched the extension file to .pyw.
The files are not synchronized every 2 seconds anymore but typically some time after 5 minutes. At the restart the files are immediately detected and synchronized.

The software runs multiples threads and processes.

I tryed to update Python interpreter but the bug remains.
