[IPython-user] os.startfile -> infinite loop

I have an interesting problem with os.startfile and Ipython. I have a
script that generates a LaTeX file and runs LaTeX. I then open the
output with os.startfile. On my computer at home, I have no problems.
On the computer in my office, I have no problems if I run pdflatex and
open a pdf file (with Acrobat). However, if I generate a dvi file and
open it with YAP, it starts an infinite loop. I know this sounds
crazy. I will attach the python script.
If I comment out this line
os.startfile(ostr) (line 77)
the code exits normally.
If I leave this line in and I am opening a dvi file, the script goes all
the way back to the begining and re-executes continually.
