Can you try compiling Python with Py_DEBUG defined? Also, calling
gc.set_debug(gc.DEBUG_LEAK) and gc.set_threshold(1) may help to trigger
the bug closer to the source of the problem.

Without being able to reproduce this its hard to do anything. It looks
like a gc_next pointer is NULL. I'll have to think really hard about it
some more. :)
