[Python-modules-team] Bug#843898: Something to try

If you google this you see that tons of people have similar issues:


The most common "solution" there is reinstalling something with pip. My
suspicion is that the people who see this on Debian also used pip and
there is something interfering. Did you guys use pip (or something else
to install Python modules not from Debian) and have a backports module
or backports.shutil_get_terminal_size itself installed there?
