[Python-Dev] SystemError: unknown opcode

After building Python from CVS (it's been a while) I get this error:

  Python 2.3a0 (#43, Sep 16 2002, 22:47:33) 
  [GCC 2.95.2 19991024 (release)] on darwin
  Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
  >>> import fontTools
  XXX lineno: 1, opcode: 127
  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
    File "/Users/just/code/fonttools/Lib/fontTools/__init__.py", line 1, in ?
      version = "2.0b2"
  SystemError: unknown opcode

Does this mean the .pyc magic number needs to be changed? Or is it simply the
risk of using CVS Python? ;-)
