Well, this is a blind guess without seeing the python code, but are 
you using os.popen() somewhere?  The windows C-runtime has a problem 
redirecting console i/o if there isn't a console open (like a dos 
window).  So this could describe your problem.  Look at the python FAQ 
for "popen" for more info.
