New submission from robwolfe <rw at smsnet.pl>:

I've tried to build muppy (http://packages.python.org/muppy/)
documentation on:
$ python2.5 -c "import sys; print sys.version"
2.5 (release25-maint, Dec  9 2006, 14:35:53)
[GCC 4.1.2 20061115 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-20)]

with Sphinx (version 0.4.2) and got this error:

$ make doctest mkdir -p build/doctest
sphinx-build -b doctest -d build/doctrees   source build/doctest
Sphinx v0.4.2, building doctest

The full traceback has been saved in /tmp/sphinx-err-XRu3ZJ.log, if you
want to report the issue to the author.
Please also report this if it was a user error, so that a better error
message can be provided next time.
Send reports to sphinx-dev at googlegroups.com. Thanks!
make: *** [doctest] Błąd 1

The simple patch I've attached helped of course.
