Previous problem was a python core dump. I got it narrowed down to a
call into pyyaml, but the pyyaml people claim it's not theirs. I
haven't taken the time to debug it further. I coded around it instead.
Current problem I don't yet know. I can usually get it to a particular
place in the code and then pdb ceases to be responsive. Coding around
this one is more problematic since I don't really know what the problem
is yet. Outside of pdb, the code simply appears to hang. Just this
minute, it looks like a timing issue in twisted since strace says the
hang is on "select" with only 1 descriptor, (I'm expecting several), but
I'll likely have a different answer an hour from now.
