This is what I get in python 2.5 (rc1) in FC-5:
$ python25
Python 2.5c1 (r25c1:51305, Aug 18 2006, 11:45:01)
[GCC 4.1.1 20060525 (Red Hat 4.1.1-1)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import code
>>> c = code.InteractiveConsole()
>>> c.interact()
Python 2.5c1 (r25c1:51305, Aug 18 2006, 11:45:01)
[GCC 4.1.1 20060525 (Red Hat 4.1.1-1)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
(InteractiveConsole)
>>> import sys
>>> sys.stdout.close()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/code.py", line 234, in interact
    line = self.raw_input(prompt)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/code.py", line 277, in raw_input
    return raw_input(prompt)
ValueError: I/O operation on closed file
>>>

no crash. With python 2.4 I get the same crash observed in this thread.
