Make sure you rebuild Objects/unicodeobject.o and the
ucnhash extension.  If they build without warnings, run
the following script.

import ucnhash
count = 0
for code in range(65536):
        name = ucnhash.getname(code)
        if ucnhash.getcode(name) != code:
            print name
        count += 1
    except ValueError:
print count

if it prints anything but "10538", let me know.

If the ucnhash extension cannot be found, the script won't
even compile...  shouldn't be too hard to fix.
