@Victor: "y* and z* result is a Py_buffer"
Correct, so why is z* documented as [Py_buffer] and y* documented as [Py_buffer*]? If I make 'buffer' from your example a Py_buffer*, as documented, then python puts writes sizeof(Py_buffer) bytes into a random spot in memory. Thus the attached patch.
Thanks for giving this a look, but I don't think this issue is closed -- the documentation for y* is still wrong.
