sys.stdin.readline() hangs on Windows as well.  This problem persists in both jython 254RC1 and 27b1.  raw_input must be used to successfully read from the keyboard.  I have encountered this problem using the standalone jar distributions on both Windows 7 and Windows XP. To reproduce the problem:

Start the jython shell: java -jar jython.jar
>>> import sys
>>> sys.stdin.readline()
Type a line of input.  Will hang.
