Rob was kind enough to send me some code to trigger the bug. The
winner is ... tupleobject.c! When MAXSAVESIZE is zero Rob's
program seems to work fine. I think Pmw uses lots of tuples.
Looking closely at the code I see that _PyTuple_Resize is almost
certainly buggy. I think something is wrong with PyTuple_New as
well. I'll have to come up with a patch later as it is much to
late now for me to fully understand such hairy code. :(
