Hmm, ultratb.py calls linecache.checkcache() frequently to ensure that the cache 
is up-to-date. However, this function will delete entries that refer to files 
that are not on the file system. Perhaps ultratb.py can be modified to use a 
modified copy of that function that leaves entries '<code ...>' entries alone.
