Is the interactive python shell vulnerable to the same problem:

guest3@...ntu20:~/tests$ cat
import sys
guest3@...ntu20:~/tests$ python3
Python 3.8.10 (default, Jun  2 2021, 10:49:15)
[GCC 9.4.0] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

['', '/usr/lib/', '/usr/lib/python3.8',
