Here is an illustration of the problem with a simple test case (the value of the posix flag doesn't make any difference):

Python 2.6.5 (r265:79063, Apr 16 2010, 13:09:56) 
[GCC 4.4.3] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import shlex
>>> list(shlex.shlex('ab'))
>>> list(shlex.shlex(u'ab', posix=True))
['a', '\x00', '\x00', '\x00', 'b', '\x00', '\x00', '\x00']
>>> list(shlex.shlex(u'ab', posix=False))
['a', '\x00', '\x00', '\x00', 'b', '\x00', '\x00', '\x00']
