Ah, we're talking about different things then.  The patch in SF #900092
is not related to hotshot, it's just ceval.c not producing enough events
to allow a precise timing of exceptions.  (Now that ceval.c is fixed, we
could remove a few hacks from profile.py, BTW.)

I am referring to a specific bug of hotshot which entirely drops some
genuine time intervals, all the time.  It's untested code!  A minimal
test like Floris' test_profile shows it clearly.

A bientot,
