You're using build 10074, an old build of Windows 10 that had a buggy
Job object API. This was fixed in build 10159:

FYI, the py launcher runs Python in a job that's configured to kill
Python if the the launcher gets killed. This is necessary if py.exe is
started by a console shell such as cmd.exe or powershell.exe. The
shell waits on py.exe, not python.exe. If the job didn't kill
python.exe, then Python would compete with the shell for console
