Summary: Install script goes into infinite loop

Initial Comment:
./configure -- works
make -- works
make test -- works
make install -- gets as far as trying to do this:

PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python2.2 \
	./python -tt /usr/local/lib/python2.2/compileall.py -x 
badsyntax \
        /usr/local/lib/python2.2
Listing /usr/local/lib/python2.2 ...
Listing /usr/local/lib/python2.2/ ...

and then goes off into infinite loop, repeating the last line until Ctrl-
C.

Debian 2.2 (potato), 2.2.18pre21 kernel version.

That's OK, me neither. ;) I've patched compileall.py and 
reran 'make install'. The log file doesn't tell me a whole lot 
more but I confess I'm no Python expert (I need to get it 
installed for a different app which requires it).

Log file attached. Be warned, uncompressed it is about 
6Mb.

I still have no clue what is going on here. Can you please
apply the attached compileall.diff, rerun installation, and
attach the resulting log file (or a significant portion
thereof)?

I downloaded it from 
http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.2.2/Python-2.2.2.tgz 
(the most obvious link off www.python.org).

Directory listing attached (I hope)

As a procedural comment: What is the source package that 
you use (precise URL please)?

Can you please provide the output of

ls -l /usr/local/lib/python2.2

Sure. (attached at end)

Running the command from the shell does seem to do the 
same thing.

There is no obvious symlink within /usr/local/lib/python2.2 
(if a directory listing would be useful, let me know)

Ok, could you paste a few listing lines and about 20 or so
before that.  Did you try running the command from the
shell?  Something like:  

  PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python2.2 \
    ./python -tt /usr/local/lib/python2.2/compileall.py \
        -x badsyntax /usr/local/lib/python2.2 

Does that do the same thing?

Is it possible there is a symlink in
/usr/local/lib/python2.2 to the same directory (or .)?

I give in, it just doesn't want to let me attach the file. It has 
about 10000 repeats of that same 'Listing' line, in any case.

Yeah, I tried that. In between the problems with file sizes, 
file names and the like, it doesn't seem to have worked. I'm 
giving it another go now.

There's no file.  You have to click the checkbox next to
"Check to Upload and Attach a File" in addition to entering
the filename.

Here's the log file. I let it run for about 10000 repeats and 
then killed it - there may be a lot of files, but _that_ many?

It definitely isn't printing out anything else except 
the 'Listing...' line. I can let it run for a few minutes and see 
if it's printing that one-per-file or something, instead of just 
looping... hang on.

Are you sure you let the process finish?  It looks like
there are at least 2 passes.  One to generate .pyc files and
the other to generate .pyo (optimized) files.  There are a
lot of files to run through.  

Does it only print the "Listing /usr/local/lib/python2.2 ...
" lines and nothing in between?  

Could you save the output and attach it to this bug report?
