Please understand that python-dev is not the place to get free
consulting. If you are willing to investigate somewhat further, try to
understand the problem, and propose patches, then I would be willing
to review the patches, comment on their correctness, and perhaps
integrate them into the Python CVS. As it stands, I can personally
take no more time to help with HP-UX problems for the near future
(say, ten years :-)

I do recall that there are serious problems with pseudo-terminals
in Python and HP-UX, so yes, we have heard of this before. If I
knew a solution, it were applied to Python already.

Please understand that this perhaps hostile-sounding response is just
my personal view; if somebody else responds more gracefully, just
ignore me.
