This showed up on StackOverflow:

They were using 32-bit Python 2.7.5 on Windows 7; I reproduced using the same Python on Windows Vista.  To reproduce, open IDLE, and enter

>>> class Foo(unicode):
>>> foo = Foo('bar')
>>> print foo

IDLE hangs then, and Ctrl+C is ignored.  Stranger, these variants do *not* hang:

>>> foo
>>> print str(foo)
>>> print repr(foo)

Those all work as expected.  Cute :-)

And none of these hang in a DOS-box session.
