New submission from James G. sack (jim) <jgsack at users.sourceforge.net>:
Evidently rev 76260 (trunk) / 76261 (py3k)
broke code at
rev 76324 line 655 (py3k)
rev 76321 line 620 (trunk)
if tests == alltests[i]
because tests was rebound from a list to an iterable, and hence indexing
cannot be performed on tests subsequent to the rebinding.
There are a few other places where tests is indexed, but I suspect those
places are before the rebinding to an iterable.
At first glance, a viable patch might be to use a different name, eg
itests, and leave the original tests list available for use by the line
causing the TypeError. However, I think someone more knowledgeable needs
to have a look.
Ummm, forgive me if this is offbase, but would it be fair to identify as
a bad practice, the rebinding of a variable to a different type.
