The test to be made runnable is
     self.assertRaises(MemoryError, list, xrange(sys.maxint // 2))
Without the performance improvement it simply takes longer to run than I 
am willing to wait. This test is only performed on 32 bit systems hence 
no problems on codespeak. As for not working on your machine i have no 
idea why. If you still have problems I'll be intrested in what 
tracebacks you get.
