[Python-Dev] current 2.5 status

Debian (ia64, ppc) is broken for several reasons, including the
following test failures:  test_ctypes test_curses test_sqlite.  Some
of the reasons vary depending on architecture.

Ubuntu on hppa seems to have problems with at least:  test_wait[34]
seems to crash.

cygwin has major problems (ie, it crashes) with test_bsddb3.  This may
actually be exposing a bug in bsddb.

None of these are show stoppers IMO.

Coverity didn't run last night.  The only outstanding issues were due
to sqlite.  Many, perhaps all, of these issues have been addressed.

The following systems are green:
Sparc Solaris 10
amd64 & x86 gentoo
Alpha Tru64 5.1
x86 Windows 2k & XP (though there were some problems due to previous runs)
x86 OpenBSD
