Actually, if you have a very fast machine, debugging with pdb in py.py works
fine.  It's related to Michael Chermside's module/_sre_pypy/ check-in.  The
bug is that _sre.compile() should accept as 3rd argument a list of unsigned
integers, but in the current implementation expects a list of signed integers
-- hence the OverflowError.

Help!  What is the proper way to unwrap an unsigned integer?
