Troubles with the python shell under windows

For various reasons I'd like to develop python in Emacs under windows. Emacs 
works pretty well in windows, but there are some hiccups with inferior 
processes, like python.

When I enter a statement into the Python prompt that causes an error, the error 
doesn't surface until after the next prompt is entered. I've invoked the 
debugger and done a side-by-side comparison with Emacs under GNU/Linux and the 
point of difference is during the call to process-send-string. In GNU/Linux, 
this results in the error immediately appearing. In windoze nothing shows up 
but another prompt.

It got worse though. I then tried to use TAB to complete at point and Emacs 
completely freezes and I had to kill the process. I take this as a sign that 
something is dreadfully wrong (other than that I'm using windows). I'm guessing 
it sent its call to get the completions, and the response is AWOL.

I was wondering if anyone could help me get to the bottom of this issue.

Keep in mind that this is with native NTEmacs 24.3 and native Python 3. I 
tested it with Cygwin Python 2, and it seems to cooperate, Cygwin Python 3 does 
not. All of my pythons are 64-bit. So it seems there may be an issue with 
Python 3.
