So you were using VC7. If so, using it for what? Every stick of code in
question, or were you mixing VC7-compiled code with VC6-compiled code? If
the latter, talk to Microsoft (by most accounts their runtime support
libraries aren't compatible with each other).

Yes, for the right meaning of "someone". Possibilities beyond you include
Python and Microsoft. Best guess I can make based on what you haven't told
us yet is that you were mixing the released Python 2.2.2 Windows core DLL
(built with MSVC6) with extension code using MSVC7 C runtime libraries.
Right or wrong?
