Even though the bug was fixed in pywin, it is interesting to observe
that Mark's analysis says

"Cause of the underling crash is that the generated .py
causes an overflow as the byte-code is generated - something
in 2.4 bloated the byte-code for these modules."

There also seems to be an interaction with PEP 263, for which patch
1101726 might provide a solution.

So I think this needs to be investigated; please submit a bug report,
including the Python file that causes the crash.
