If you're debugging this, input is via the Debug I/O tool.  It may
not gain focus automatically -- is that what you mean or is it completely

I tried this in debugging, executing it in OS Commands, and doing Evaluate File
in Python Shell and all of them worked for me on OS X 10.4 w/ Python 2.5.
I may be misunderstanding your report, however.
