As other posters note, the segmentation fault comes from the cPickle
module.  If you are using literal strings as your cookie values,
Cookie.py (now at version 2.24 or so) includes a way to skip the
cPickle parsing step:

     cookie.SimpleCookie(a)

See the Cookie.py module documentation for more information.
