Tim (or anyone with python-list logs), can you forward this to Sachin (who reported the bug).
Sorry for not getting back to you sooner, I just fwd'ed the fellow's problem as an FYI for the Python-Dev'ers, not as something crucial for 2.0b1. His symptom is a kernel panic in what looked like a pre-release OS, and that's certainly not your fault! Like he said:
I guess my next step is to log a bug with Apple.
Since nobody else spoke up, I'll fwd your msg to him eventually, but that will take a little time to find his address via DejaNews, & it's not a priority tonight.
