Oh. I also got this surprising (Pdb) prompt when running "python -m test" on Windows.

The prompt doesn't display any output, I only get the prompt display

*But* I managed to get more info about that issue:

(Pdb) f=open("debug.txt", "w")
(Pdb) import traceback
(Pdb) traceback.print_stack(file=f)
(Pdb) f.flush()

C:\vstinner\python\master\build\test_python_6260æ\debug.txt content:

  File "C:\vstinner\python\master\lib\", line 381, in default
    exec(code, globals, locals)
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>

Using debug.txt, I also see that in test_signal, sys.gettrace() = <bound method Bdb.trace_dispatch of <pdb.Pdb object at 0x0000029D85AB3570>>.

Lib/test/libregrtest/ is supposed to mark a test as "env changed" (ENV_CHANGED) if sys.gettrace() is changed between two tests.
