For what it's worth... There appeared a bug in recent libc6 (2.1.93
ou 2.1.94) that resulted in the symbol LONG_BIT being defined to be 64
on a x86 (32 bit) machine. The practical result is that a recent
(CVS) Python compiled with that libc will raise an integer
multiplication overflow even if you just calculate 1*1. More info is
available on the Sourceforge bug tracking site for the Python project:
