Python 3.8 is the last version to support Windows 7 (i.e. NT 6.1). It should get bug fixes through Spring 2021, so we have a couple more years to fix this.

We should constrain the fix to just older versions of Windows (prior to 6.2) and the classic console file handles (i.e. the lower 2 bits are set such as 3, 7, 11) that they use. Otherwise a bad standard handle should fail the call.
