It also reliably crashes 2.3, though I don't see anything in there as
being illegal, but maybe I don't understand the langauge as well as I

Note that there is another segfaulting bug in CPython with regards to
threads that was recently closed, but which is still a problem:
Does IronPython survive in that case?
