Interesting – I don't get this (on master, admittedly).

Is there anything that could be affected by system environment?

It seems that your re module has a different opinion on what white space is in unicode mode – i.e the re.UNICODE flag.

This should probably be reported on the CPython bug tracker.

Could this be due to locale settings?
