New submission from Jon Bringhurst <jon at bringhurst.org>:

I just ran into this while using the smtplib example on:

2.6 (r26:66714, Jan 17 2012, 11:02:11)
GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-44)

Running the program simply gives a "Segmentation Fault (core dumped)"

Running it under gdb...

[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
[New Thread 0x2b0257007b80 (LWP 2567)]

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
PyEval_EvalFrameEx (f=0x17701d00, throwflag=<value optimized out>) at Python/ceval.c:4342
4342        if (!PyDict_Check(gobals)) {
