I reported a segfault some time ago (python2.4 specific), of which you
can read in the archives, but no one seemed to be interested and I
didn't want to push it. My post was about
 compilemodule.py, but this might very well be related since they use
the same code quite the same way I think. The segfaulting stopped at
some point, but if you try a revision around the time that I sent my
post (11.5), you might be able to reproduce it.
The segfaulting itself seemed to me as a bug in python, but since it
didn't happen with 2.5 (some other error did though =), I didn't see it
as so important. Maybe I should've pushed it harder =).

Just say if I'm totally off the course,
