[Python-Dev] RE: test_sort.py failure

I think I have a fix for this, and will check it in when the tests finish.

However, it doesn't fail on my box -- MS is *always* moving the memory
around.  So I hope that, before someone rebuilds with the checkin,
they temporarily fiddle the test on their box so it fails more often. 
I expect that setting the list size to 3 instead of 50 will do that. 
If you set it to 1, the test will never fail.
