Problems running testsuite on Windows with Python 3

While testing 1.14.0-rc2 I ran into multiple problems when trying to
run the testsuite with Python 3 (3.8.2 in my case, but I tried 3.7.7
too with identical results). In the end I bailed, and ran the
testsuite (successfully) with Python 2.7.

First of all: the testsuite simply doesn't run with Py3.8 when the
output is redirected to a logfile, because of this problem:


Adding --log-to-stdout allows it to continue, as does defining the
PYTHONLEGACYWINDOWSSTDIO environment variable (as is explained in the
above SO article). Or running with Py 3.5 or lower (the problem
happens since Python 3.6, as explained in the SO).

So it seems the technique of redirecting stdout to a file by using
os.dup2() simply doesn't work well anymore. If you add a print
statement below line 852 in run_tests.py (just below the first
os.dup2()) you get this error output:

Testing Release configuration on local repository.

OSError: [WinError 6] The handle is invalid
Exception ignored in: <_io.TextIOWrapper name='<stdout>' mode='w'
OSError: [WinError 6] The handle is invalid

Running the testsuite with Py 3.8.2 with PYTHONLEGACYWINDOWSSTDIO
defined in the environment allows it to complete. It results in 68
FAILS (for ra_local x fsfs). See attached fails.log.

I hope some Python-experienced people can look at this a bit closer
(sorry, I've run out of time for now to dig further -- though I can
probably still make some time to try out different patches if there
are suggestions).
