False alarm.

It turned out to be spew that I've seen before only under certain circumstances:
if you're on a gentoo box and your $TERM env. var. is set to "xterm",
then importing readline causes some non-printable characters to be
written to stdout.

The test was failing on those, because it expects "OK" to be the last
thing printed by the subprocess.

I can make it pass by setting TERM=linux or TERM=xterm-color.

I can't reproduce on any other *nix I've tried (ubuntu, OSX).  *Shrug*

FWIW here's a demo of the garbage output from importing readline:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~ $ TERM=xterm python -c "import readline" | od -c
0000000 033   [   ?   1   0   3   4   h
0000010
[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~ $ TERM=linux python -c "import readline" | od -c
0000000
