The problem with stdin/stdout is on Windows 2000 (and maybe the earlier
NT?). But not on XP or AFAIK Vista.
It only occurs when a program is executed indirectly using the file
associations instead of directly via the command line.
File associations, are the Windows "let's do it a different way"
alternative for Unix she-bang lines (#!/path/to/python).
