Hi Y'all

Newbie Ray here.
Running win32 installer version of 
Python2.3 on win98(notSE)

I decided to run the autotest from IDLE 1 window.

1 skip unexpected on win32:

I need to know if this is significant.

Also, the test_descr failed, so I ran it
separatly and here's where it crashed.

Testing special operators...

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python23\Lib\test\", line 4029, in -toplevel-
  File "C:\Python23\Lib\test\", line 3973, in test_main
  File "C:\Python23\Lib\test\", line 1875, in specials
    print Letter('w')
PicklingError: Can't pickle <class '__main__.Letter'>: attribute
lookup __main__.Letter failed

Am I in trouble? Is this a Biggie?
