'Python -c "import distutils.msvccompiler"' hangs when the environment
is too large.  This is because in Lib\distutils\, line
258, popen.wait() does not return because the subprocess does not
terminate (probably because the stdout buffersize is too small).  This
causes the win64-buildbot to hang.

Fixed in r59370 (trunk)
I'm going to merge the changes into py3k soon.
