create_superuser fails on Windows XP/Python 3.2

You can't seem to create a new project 1.5, on Windows XP (I've no choice!) running Python 3.2....

The trouble seems to be here:


The "create_superuser" function depends on input()... however, it's suffixed with an odd character (new line or similar?) that doesn't to equate to "no" or "yes" and so goes in an infinite loop. This project creation.

Throwing a .rstrip() onto the end of input() seems to fix it!

Many thanks

That's a bug in Python 3.2:

It's fixed in Python 3.2.1. Can you upgrade?

Since the bug isn't in Django, I'm going to close this ticket.

That's cool, thanks for the help and speedy response... Might be worth mentioning Django 1.5 supports >= Python 3.2.1 on the front/download page?

Thanks again.
