This is posted to comp.lang.python and miktex at dsts.dk

When I try to run pdflatex (miktex 1.20e) from a Python script with
popen("pdflatex "+filename) under win98 SE I get a fault in kernel32.dll. 

This does not happen for pure latex.

I would like to know if this also happens on other machines or only on mine.
