Works for me. But only after the stdin is closed with a C-d.
I presume this is an OS thing. The first lines aren't communicated to
the process until either the file is closed - C-d - or the buffer the OS
puts before the stream is filled. You can switch to unbuffered behviour
somehow, google for it. Termios should be in your query.
Either way, it's not python behaving differently.
