[Python-Dev] ctypes assertion failure

This problem was raised on the comtypes-users list
as it prevents comtypes from being imported on Python 2.6
at the moment.


I'll try to find the time to step through to code to work out
what's going on, but it's inside the innards of ctypes which
I've never looked into before.

Could someone confirm at a glance whether this should be
given a high priority, please? It results in an assertion error
in debug mode, a SystemError in non-debug referring to
a NULL return without an Exception set.
