Did somebody already test python 2.2.1 using valgrind 1.0.1?


because testing one of my own modules, I get the following
recurrent error report whenever I import something:

==19951== Conditional jump or move depends on uninitialised value(s)
==19951==    at 0x8094B85: find_module (in 
==19951==    by 0x8095DE2: import_submodule (Python/import.c:1887)
==19951==    by 0x80959B8: load_next (Python/import.c:1752)
==19951==    by 0x8097608: import_module_ex (Python/import.c:1603)

and  I don't know if I can ignore it or if this is a real python error.


PS: the error appears whenever you import a module, so,
after installing valgrind, try doing:

    echo import math > test.py
    valgrind /usr/local/bin/python test.py

if you have python installed in the /usr/local/bin directory, of course.
