The Ouput window in SciTE doesn't seem to handle
backspaces correctly for interactive programs.

I'm using SciTE 1.53 and Python 2.1 on Windows 2K.

Open SciTE and enter the following code:

input = raw_input("input:")
print input

save it as bug.py, and select "Python" under the
language menu.

under the "Tools" menu, select "Go". Switch to the
Output window ([Shift]+[F6]).

type in the following keystrokes:
[b][o][Backspace][u][g]

hit [Enter]

Here's my transcript:

>pythonw -u bug.py
input:bug
boug
>Exit code: 0

if you run this same code in IDLE or the python console,
you will get the string "bug" instead of "boug".

    The interactive output window only provides a subset of a
    shell. I don't expect to improve this.
