The correlation with sparc probably isn't real (that was just a
subjective impression on my part based on the buildbot failure emails).
When --with-pydebug is enabled, I can reproduce the fault (as posted by
Alexandre) on 32-bit x86 Linux.

There may be a specific issue with the klose buildbots, but the crash in
the object deallocation is obscuring the original problem.

I'll put further comment on the issue Georg linked.
