New submission from Stephan R.A. Deibel:
The algorithm in code_hash() in codeobject.c can return the same hash
value for different code objects.
Presumably distinct code objects should be very unlikely to have the
same hash value. This bug affected our debugger before we worked around
it, and it could affect other things like profilers.
Adding the co_filename to the hash would be one way to fix this but I'm
not sure if that was purposely avoided in this code?
