At interpreter shutdown, the module's global variables are set to None 
before the module itself is released. __del__ methods may be called in 
those precaries circumstances, and should not rely on any global state.

A temporary fix would be to make Popen._internal_poll and 
Popen._handle_exitstatus keep a reference to the os module (just add a 
default argument os=os, like sys=sys in __del__). But this is just a 
hack; the real fix would be to avoid defining __del__ at all.

A patch for subprocess.py is attached.
