[Python-Dev] compiler bug #1042238 is blocking the 2.4b1 release

Anyone with knowledge of Lib/compiler is urged to examine
www.python.org/sf/1042238. It's breaking on some genexprs,
in particular in Lib/_strptime.py
The failing code, distilled down, is:
a="""def foo(*x): return x
foo((a for b in [[1,2,3],[4,5,6]] for a in b),'Z')"""
It's the combination of the genexps and the function call
with another argument.
This bug is bad enough (IMHO) to block 2.4b1. Please,
if you know about this, have a look at the failure.
