Writing code in shell editor, my code is line-for-line same as instructor's but correct guesses are counted as strikes

So I'm in Brazil and my connection isn't always good enough to use Workspaces, so I've been using the Python Shell (3.5.2), and I think something about it was causing the game not to work even though my code was line-for-line the same as the instructor's from the ZIP file. Is anyone aware of any issues with the shell's editor that might have caused this? I notice some funny behavior when I try to highlight and indent certain code blocks.
