I've attached a simplified example program (working3.c) that demonstrates both the original problem and that the patch (Python-2.6.6-Run_Interactive-fix.patch) works. It eliminates the need for a pty, 'xterm', and redirection.

Compile the attached program with:

> gcc `python-config --cflags` working3.c -o working3 `python-config --ldflags`

and run it with (before and after patching):

> ./working3

Also, for verification, run 'python' with no arguments to show that default interactivity is preserved.
