I'll check it later.

The patch still contains some debugging code that redirects stdout and
stderr to a file when PY_STDERR_FILE is defined.

It happens when a script is run with pythonw.exe (pyw extension).
PythonW.exe isn't a console application but a GUI app which doesn't
create a console window. However GUI apps don't have valid standard
streams because stdin, stdout and stderr aren't connected.

Here are some links that shed some light on the problem:
