[New-bugs-announce] [issue9020] 2.7: eval hangs on AIX

New submission from Sridhar Ratnakumar <sridharr at activestate.com>:

I first noticed this when `test_compare_function_objects` was taking forever to run. The culprit is that the following statement just hangs forever. Note that "eval(2)", for instance, runs fine, but when a builtin object is used (eg: None, True), it hangs.

  python -c "eval('None')"

This is reproducible on Python 2.7 (rc1 and latest trunk) and AIX 5.1.

This is regression, as it used to work on 2.6.
