There was a recent discussion on this on jython-dev, have a look at the 
archives:

This was fixed in the cvs version some time ago, see version 2.67 of 
Py.java:

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/jython/jython/org/python/core/Py.java

I'm not sure whether other Jython source code files are affected.

Have fun,
