FYI: Python WSPR + W10 1607 + remote desktop

Been running WSPR V4.0 on W10 Pro 32-bit for a while.
It was mostly stable, with *very* infrequent crashes.

The other day MS hit me with a 'Feature update',
taking me to 1607 (14393.693).

Now, any remote desktop connect or disconnect,
or even 'switch user' then reconnect on local desktop,
causes WSPR to crash.

On a couple occasions I was quick enough to capture an error message in the console box:

C:\WSPR40>bin\wspr
******************************************************************
WSPR Version 4.0 r4171, by K1JT
Run date: Sun Feb 5 19:02:18 2017 UTC
An error occured while using the portaudio stream
Error number: -9999
Error message: Unanticipated host error
Error in soundin -1
Fatal Python error: PyEval_RestoreThread: NULL tstate

This did NOT happen prior to the 'Feature update'.

I frequently used remote desktop to keep an eye on things when not at local desktop, and could switch between local and remote desktop with no problems either. (Note: my remote desktop sessions always used 'leave audio on remote' option).

One other interesting side note: I also run fldgi in parallel on the same sound card in/out, and it is NOT affected by the desktop connects/disconnects, just WSPR.
