You are using stackless map here.
It *might* be that there are still bugs in
stackless map, and nobody really needs it urgently,
so I'm not looking at fixing, but providing a way to
circumvent it for now.
Please try the following:
Before starting your code, set
__builtins__.map = __builtins__.map_orig
If the problem is gone afterwards, then I have a stackless
map bug :-))
