Short version: Try adding a "sys.stdout.flush()" after each of your print 
statements in your python script.

Longer version: when you run that program in a terminal, the output is a 
TTY and the standard output is flushed after every line.  When you run it 
as a subprocess, the standard output is a pipe and it is buffered.

This is not Racket specific, you would get the same problem if you ran 
"os.system("")" in another python program.
