Really latest Python? As in from CVS, or Python 1.5.2?
If it Python 1.5.2, then it just a minor glitch which has been fixed;
part of the result of executing
$ cvs log popen2.py

Calling _cleanup() does not guarantee that all processes have
terminated; this makes the final assert in the self-test code fail if
the parent runs faster than the children. Fix this by calling wait()
on the remaining children instead.
I don't think it's a real problem.
