Any advice as to where I should look at and/or how to try fixing this?

~/python/CVS> ./python Lib/test/test_array.py
array after append:  array('c', 'c')
char array with 10 bytes of TESTFN appended:  array('c', 'cThe quick ')
char array with list appended:  array('c', 'cThe quick abc')
array of c after inserting another: array('c', 'ccThe quick abc')
array of c converted to a list:  ['c', 'c', 'T', 'h', 'e', ' ', 'q', 'u', 'i', 'c', 'k', ' ', 'a', 'b', 'c']
array of c converted to a string:  'ccThe quick abc'
array after append:  array('b', [1])
array of b after inserting another: array('b', [1, 1])
array of b converted to a list:  [1, 1]
array of b converted to a string:  '\001\001'
overflow test: array('b', [-128L])
