New submission from Daniel Urban <urban.dani+py at gmail.com>:

The example in the shelve documentation (http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/shelve.html#example) uses the old range() (which returned a list):

d['xx'] = range(4)  # this works as expected, but...
d['xx'].append(5)   # *this doesn't!* -- d['xx'] is STILL range(4)!
