[New-bugs-announce] [issue6806] test_platform fails under Snow Leopard

Brett Cannon report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Brett Cannon <brett at python.org>:

test.platform fails under Snow Leopard because the golden input for the OS 
version, sw_vers, reports Snow Leopard as '10.6' while 
platform.mac_ver()[0] (which uses gestalt.gestalt()) return '10.6.0'.

Best solution might be to tweak the test to append a '0' when sw_vers 
returns a value that is short a micro version.
