[DB-SIG] DB-API Ingres module ingmod bug.

Hi everybody,

I've found the bug in ingmod.ec which made "tuple index out of range" 
pop up later in python programs.

It was in the sqlda_input_bind(...) function: PySequence_GetItem(seq, 
num) fails at the end of seq and raises an exception that we must clear, 
with PyErr_Clear(), before leaving the loop, else it will crop up a 
little bit later (when a function call PyErr_Occurred() or something 
like that). Another way to do it would be to use PySequence_Length(seq) 
to get the seq's size and work with it.

if (!(elem = PySequence_GetItem(sequence, num)))

I sent the source to Holger Meyer (ingmod's original author) for him to 
review and integrate.

As I've currently no mean (and no time actually) to set up a place where 
the package could be downloaded, I attach it to this mail, in case it 
would be useful to someone.
