This is a slightly better description of the problem. However it's still not
clear what exactly you want to achieve. Do you need to continue running your
python script as the new user? Or do you want to run other commands as teh
new user? In any case, take a look at pexpect
(http://pexpect.sourceforge.net) and see if it fits your purpose.
