Getting reproducible cases is usually the hardest part of any bug fix. :)

If there is information about the platform, version of Python, build flags etc. that we want to capture in bug reports, there should be a `python -m bugreport` or some such that we can ask people to run and attach or paste into their issue.  Maybe even cooler would be something that opens a new GitHub issue with that information pre-populated.
