The fix for #2304 causes issues on Windows if you have file associations setup that aren't Python interpters. In my case I have an association setup to open .py files in gvim, which causes the shell tests to hang until I quit the editor, then it fails because the output from gvim (nothing) doesn't match what it would when run through an interpreter.

CommandsWithSpaces.test_shell_* tests should have a skip condition which checks file associations before running. The info is stored somewhere in the registry, so it should be easy to see that, e.g., gvim.exe isn't a valid Python interpreter.

This issue only affects me at the moment, but it could affect other users who have tweaked file associations.

Attached is a patch that fixes this for me, and I *think* it's looking in the most correct area for the information.

Tim or any other Windows users, would you mind seeing that the skip does not occur on your machines, thus allowing it to properly run those tests?

Assuming I understand you correctly, could I propose this rather less involved patch which simply specifies the sys.executable as part of the command line. The test doesn't propose to test file associations and indeed two of the test already fill in the executable

Yeah that's much better :)
I should have asked if you left out sys.executable out intentionally before coming up with my patch...I assumed it was intended to be different due to shell=1 or something.

Go ahead and apply if you want.
