Well, it's not really a duplicate, but rather invalid, since the 2.7 behavior is more correct than the 2.6 behavior.  Not that it matters all that much what particular resolution is attached to a bug.

Arve: It is unfortunate that the bug fix in issue 8972 caused a regression for you, but at this point what is done is done.

Also, for future reference, when attaching files to an issue please attach text files only.  They are much easier to review.

nosy: +r.david.murray
resolution: duplicate -> invalid
stage:  -> committed/rejected
superseder:  -> subprocess.list2cmdline doesn't quote the & character
