Problem running two Python interpreters on Darwin

I've just noticed a strange problem with Python
2.2.1 on Darwin (Kernel Version 1.4).

I can start an interactive interpreter session
in one shell window just fine. But if I leave
that running and try to start a second one in
another shell window, I get a Bus Error:

basil% python
Bus Error
basil%

To make matters even stranger, if I start the
second one from within gdb, the bus error
doesn't occur. (I discovered this while trying
to find out where the bus error was coming
from. I hate heisenbugs!)

Anyone have the foggiest what might be
going on?
