unless you've written the extension module, it's not
really your fault... read on.

technically, this means that an extension library returns NULL
to Python, without setting the exception status. it's a bug in
the extension library.
(it's probably caused by a configuration problem of some kind,
but the library should tell you so, rather than returning bogus
values to the python interpreter...)
