Python 1.6a2 crashes in test_fork1 on my Mandrake Linux 7 machine

I just tried to build a first alpha release of the Linux distribution of
Python, and the run crashes on the test_fork1 script. Sometimes it
just hangs, as soon as I switch on full optimizations during compilation I get
a nice seg fault. The freezes occurs when I compile python without any but the
standard optimizations on my machine. I am running glibc 2.1.2 and gcc 2.95.2.
With 1.5.2 this works really fine.

I will try to investigate this issue. But for this I have to check the CVS
logs of the relevant files. Anybody with a useful hint should feel free to
mail me. ;-))

Best regards,
