[11000] replaces subprocess.Popen.terminate() (which is only available since Python 2.6) with a quite ugly mix of win32api.TerminateProcess on Windows and os.kill() elsewhere.

I still get the access is denied errors on Windows, so I added a try: ... except: ... for that.

Any better ideas?

Milestone: 0.13
Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

[11031] fixes some Python 2.5 incompatibilities and replaces the use of pywin32 (win32api.TerminateProcess introduced in [11000] above) on Windows with ctypes, which is included with Python since 2.5. (These were also mentioned in th:#9560)
