Yes, the warnings that linked gives for my app point to the sources of 

/u/local/lib/python2.2/config/libpython2.2.a(posixmodule.o): In function 
/usr/local/src/Python-2.2.1/./Modules/posixmodule.c:4505: the use of 
`tmpnam_r' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp'

/usr/local/src/Python-2.2.1/./Modules/posixmodule.c:4453: the use of 
`tempnam' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp'

The crash happens in Py_Initialize before I get a chance to mess with 

Here's the top of the stack:

Yes. Stuff like timemodule.so that my program tries to load dynamically.

configure of Python 2.2.1 of course!
