But, when I tried it in Python, I got the same as before:
>>> import serial
>>> ser = serial.Serial(0, timeout = 1)
out of curiosity, if you change the timeout above to 5....
Serial<id=0x225c240, open=True>(port='COM1', baudrate=9600, bytesize=8,
parity='N', stopbits=1, timeout=1, xonxoff=False, rtscts=False,
... does the delay before printing the traceback below take about 5
No. There is no delay regardless of the timeout setting.

Hmmm... any chance you don't have administrative rights on the account
performing this? I never got to Win7 (having stopped at XP) but I know
it's got a reputation for excessive permission asking.
Otherwise, I'd take this up on the main list. Chris Liechti, the
[author|current maintainer|significant contributor] of pyserial monitors
that list and would probably be interested in diagnosing what you're
describing. You could also ask him as per the 'send me a message' link
on his sourceforge page at
