If it's in pydev, there's probably some problem in your interpreter
configuration (when you do os. it'll spawn a shell to gather the
completions -- but that should be pretty quick unless you have some
firewall that's preventing the communication or the spawn didn't go
well -- check your error log to see if you have any errors... In linux
I've seen some problems when connecting to 127.0.0.1 while having ipv6
enabled or in a network card misconfiguration that could cause
problems too).

Cheers,

Fabio
