It's an interesting thought, but I have used the C++ library
extensively and have no problems with it.  Since the constructor I was
using in the python code takes a date arg (eg, MyDate("06/15/2001") or
MyDate(6,15,2001) ) current time should not make a difference.  But
I'll bear it in mind and try the test case at several times today and
tonight.  And could this explain why commenting out code *after* the
line where it froze could make a difference.
