Here's an improved repro script.

I believe it demonstrates that it is the combination of subprocess.Popen and threading that causes the problem.

Here's the output from my Windows XP VM:

***

Note that:
- even when subprocess redirects to DEVNULL there are errors
- when no subprocess.Popen is executed, no errors occur (the file is created as normal, but is not used by subprocess.Popen)
