Yes, this happens for me in 2.7b1+ on Windows 7 x64. (I tried it when I saw Edward's post.)

As remarked in my previous post (2013-02-04) I thought fixing #1967 was necessary, but there's an extra problem at the DOS prompt. If I remember rightly, in that context InputStream provides characters one at a time and the line ending is just \r.

I find I get satisfactory results from the alternative console org.python.util.InteractiveConsole although I lose the interactive line recall, of course.

>>> import sys
>>> sys.stdin.readline()

Am I in the best position to fix it?
