Yet another disguise of probably the same underlying bug:

aList = [['a']]
anItem = ['a']

print aList.index (anItem)

Traceback (most recent call last):
   at __main__.Initialize() in C:\activ_dell\prog\fun\src\funTry.py:line 4
ValueError: list.index(x): x not in list

The number of workarounds in my code is getting a bit too big now, since I
am using this everywhere.

Unfortunately I'll have to revert to 0.9.5 awaiting these things to be

Guys, you've been making a great product upto now.
My sincere respect for that.
As far as I can see the IP team has been impressively productive.
Don't know what the project pressures are, but please keep taking the time
you need!

I'd personally rather wait some more months for 1.0 than having things done
in a rush.

I propose basic stuff like this is added to the regression test suite.

Kind regards
