Neal plugged another hole later, but-- alas --I have seen the same shy failure since then on WinXP. One of the most recent buildbot test runs saw it too, on a non-Windows box:
test_socket_ssl test test_socket_ssl crashed -- exceptions.TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not callable
in the second test run there.
For closure, I believe this problem was addressed by revs 42842 and 42844 to Lib/test/test_importhooks.py.
If anyone sees spurious failures with the buildbot (one time failures, crashes, etc), please report the problems to python-dev. It would be great to see if you can reproduce the results with the same tests that failed. We need to determine if it is architecture specific, test-order related, or something else.
