I agree that this is an annoying bug, and I'm glad that it doesn't occur in the 27-maint branch.
I won't close this issue yet though, I'd prefer to add a unittest that demonstrates the problem in 2.7.0 and shows that the problem is fixed afterwords.
Basically something like this:
pid = os.fork()
if pid == 0:
exit = sys.waitpid(pid, 0)
