This could be one of thousands of things. If it works with 2.5 and no  
more with 2.6 some possible candidates are (1) a bug in Python, (2) a  
difference in memory layout which caused buggy code to work correct in  
2.5 nonetheless or (3) a timing difference, with the same effect.

Oh yes, if you're on Windows and using the prebuilt dll it could also  
be caused by runtime library differences, I think 2.5 was built with  
VS2003 and 2.6 with VS2005.

You'll need to provide a bit more detail if you want more help (OS and  
version, how you built Python and your app, is your code in an  
extension module or embedding Python, how does it crash, did you get a  
stack trace, etc)
