I see the issue where the >>> prompt is not displayed when it should be.
It looks like it is written but stays buffered until the next bit of
output is written. This sounds like the problem mentioned in the ncurses
release notes where a program assumes that ncurses' buffers are the same
as stdio's buffers. Either libedit or python probably needs a flush call

I don't see the other more serious problems though. It may have
something to do with the declared terminal type?
