I just re-tested this in cpython trunk at changeset and the issue does not appear to be reproducible.

I first launched IDLE by running "python lib\idlelib\".  Then I entered the following:

Python 3.3a0 (default, Apr  2 2011, 21:55:40) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.
>>> import sys
>>> sys.getwindowsversion()
sys.getwindowsversion(major=5, minor=1, build=2600, platform=2, service_pack='Service Pack 3')
>>> import subprocess
>>> PIPE = subprocess.PIPE
>>> p = subprocess.Popen(["python", "-c", "print(32)"], stdin=None, stdout=PIPE, stderr=PIPE)
>>> p
<subprocess.Popen object at 0x00F85610>
>>> p.returncode

Popen() did not raise any exceptions.  I also tried in Python 2.7 and the Popen called succeeded there as well.  So my inability to reproduce the issue does not necessarily mean that the issue is fixed, but rather that it is likely dependent on the version of Windows on which Python is running.

That being said, the linked issue issue1124861 logs what appears to be the same issue and it was fixed in Python 2.6.  So maybe I'm just not old enough to have encountered this issue :)  Anyways, this issue probably can be closed as either a duplicate or fixed incidentally.
