I updated my Python 2.7.12 to 2.7.13 on Windows 10 x64. When I run it in Windows command prompt shell, Python prints the version header and then exits immediately. Like so:

"""
E:\Users\thisuser>python
Python 2.7.13 (v2.7.13:a06454b1afa1, Dec 17 2016, 20:53:40) [MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

E:\Users\thisuser>
"""

This did not happen before.

The same happens when Python is run from a powershell. I have no problems running ipython or jupyter notebook, however. And Python does the right thing when run under MSYS2, like so:

"""
$ python -i
Python 2.7.13 (v2.7.13:a06454b1afa1, Dec 17 2016, 20:53:40) [MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>>
"""

Could this be an encoding problem? Because MSYS2 is fairly new and I think it might be more friendly to the encoding issues related to Windows shell programming.
