heres the code:
and the full set of imports...
from myghtyutils.container import *
import myghtyutils.buffer as buffer
import random, time, weakref, sys, re
import unittest, sys
raise "this test requires a thread-enabled python"
and from then on its just unit tests. Ill see if just having a file
called "Container.py" with minimal python in it produces the same results
(not at an appropriate workstation at the moment).
