I have some more available time now.

I'm still sometimes getting gibberish in my gdbm data (gdbm via ctypes) when using pypy 
- whether pypy 1.4.1 or a pypy trunk build from 2011-02-13.

If one does an "svn checkout http://stromberg.dnsalias.org/svn/backshift/trunk", it is 
my belief that one should get the various dependencies required, including readline0, 
treap and rolling_checksum_py_mod, though the latter two will only be built if you run 
"make treap.py rolling_checksum_py_mod.py" (or the default rule, but that does a LOT of 
stuff).  Oh, and readline0.py will likely need to be copied to ~/lib/. .

After that, there's a directory trunk/tests/70-pypy-gibberish, in which the default 
make rule should demonstrate the problem.

If there's (else) anything I can get you to facilitate solving this problem, please 
don't hesitate to let me know.
