As of Python 3.5, Windows XP is no longer a supported platform. Since
there has also been a change of compiler for 3.5, it wouldn't surprise
me if there are odd problems where something just doesn't work. Can
you reproduce the problem on Win 7 or newer? If it's just an XP
problem, I suspect the devs won't be very much interested in fixing it
(although if _you_ fix it, they may be willing to incorporate the
change, assuming it doesn't break anything else).
