The python script worked but didn't need any stupid modifications.

Unfortunately stdin appeared at the beginning of the output in one 
chunk, and again each time the interpreter read from stdin, because, of 
course, it doesn't wait for the prompt.

expect is easy enough, though not as easy as cut & pasting a script from 
python's doc site, and then not testing it at all :-)
