Command line: (longexp crashes purify for some reason)
	./python -E -tt ./Lib/test/regrtest.py -u network -x test_longexp.py

	168 tests OK.
	1 test failed:
	15 tests skipped:
	    test_al test_bsddb test_cd test_cl test_curses test_dl test_gl
	    test_imgfile test_linuxaudiodev test_nis test_ntpath test_openpty
	    test_sundry test_winreg test_winsound

test test_socket_ssl crashed -- socket.sslerror: SSL_CTX_new error

When running test_curses:

	test test_curses crashed -- _curses.error: curs_set() returned ERR

Uninitialized Memory Reads (don't think these are python's fault):

	gdbm_open()	gdbmmodule.c:68 
	getaddrinfo()	socketmodule.c:636

Memory Leaks:


Potential Memory Leaks:

	1012 from 4 different allocating points -- all in WeakRef

Things look great!

Most likely possibility seems to be bsddb, sundry also needs bsddb.
