New submission from Christian Heimes:

Coverity doesn't like the code in and I think it's right. Can somebody look into the matter and check Python 3.3, too?


10. freed_arg: "tstate_delete_common(PyThreadState *)" frees "tstate". 

395    tstate_delete_common(tstate);
11. Condition "autoInterpreterState", taking true branch
CID 1019639 (#1 of 1): Use after free (USE_AFTER_FREE)12. use_after_free: Using freed pointer "tstate".
396    if (autoInterpreterState && PyThread_get_key_value(autoTLSkey) == tstate)
397        PyThread_delete_key_value(autoTLSkey);
