Tim (or anyone with python-list logs), can you forward this to Sachin (who reported the bug).

Has anyone experienced this. I updated my version of python to the latest source from the CVS repository and successfully built it. Upon executing a "make test", my machine ended up in a kernel panic when the test being executed was "test_largefile".
My configuration is: Powerbook G3 128M RAM Mac OS X DP4
I guess my next step is to log a bug with Apple.
I added this test module. It would be nice to have a little bit more information seeing as I have never played on a Mac (OS X acts like BSD under the hood, right?)
1. Can you tell me, Sachin, *where* in test_largefile it is failing? The file is python/dist/src/Lib/test/test_largefile.py. Try running it directly:
2. If it dies before it produces any output can you tell me if it died on line 18: f.seek(2147483649L) which, I suppose is possible. Maybe this is not a good way to determine if the system has largefile support.
Jeremy, Tim, Guido, As with the NetBSD compile bug. I won't have time to fix this by the freeze today unless it is I get info from the people who encountered these bugs and it is *really* easy to fix.
