[New-bugs-announce] [issue27052] Python2.7.11+ as in Debian testing and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS crashes with segfault

New submission from Ján Jockusch:

Python2.7.11+ as distributed by Ubuntu 16.04LTS and Debian testing crashes with a segmentation fault when running a simple Zope2 instance.

Python.org's Python2.7.11 does not exhibit the same crash.

It is possible that one of the patches in debian/patches or another factor of the Debianization introduces a regression or a new issue.

The issue has been registered with Ubuntu here:


Matthias Klose, Debian maintainer for the package, has asked me to
report this problem upstream, because otherwise we will invariably run
into this regression in 2.7.12.

I have attached the script I use to produce the segmentation fault. I involves installing Zope2 from the internet, but other that that, it only requires a standard Python2.7 installation (with zlib support).

I have also succeeded in calling and producing this error in gdb, but I don't know how to move on from there.

Any hints on how I can locate the problem are very welcome!
