python shell crashing on paste

I just upgraded to Windows 7 (yes, I know) and I've been having a
really strange problem with running python (2.6.4, installed from the installer) from the command line.

If I open the interpreter, and then paste in a long string,
conhost.exe crashes. This doesn't happen when pasting the string just
in the command line so its something with the python interpreter.

Here's the details of the windows crash:

Log Name:      Application

Has anyone else seen anything like this? Any suggestions on how to
even start figuring this out?
