As presented, we can't know how you're using sys.settrace, nor how this
code relates to the rest of the program.

Please show a complete, minimal example that shows the behaviour you're
experiencing.  This will do a few things:

  - We'll be able to see what you're seeing, unless the problem is
    somehow dependent on your computer.
  - You'll cut away any code that doesn't relate to the problem (hint:
    keep cutting until the problem doesn't appear).
  - In reducing the problem to its essentials, you will gain more
    insight into what is actually happening, and possibly solve it
