Indeed, Popen.communicate() is incompatible not only between 3.2 and 3.3, but between Windows and POSIX too.

Documentation says the input argument should be a bytes string and 3.2 on POSIX works only with bytes strings. 3.2 on Windows and 3.3 on both platforms require an unicode string, as 3.3 documentation says. 3.2 on Windows hangs with a bytes string.

Patch updated with the documentation change (copied from 3.3).
