Trouble with psyco

psyco is acting a bit psycho for me.

Please see my at <>

When psyco is in use, entering an integer somewhere between 2000 and 2500 
causes my computer to freeze. Not really freeze but the program doesn't 
finish, and I have to quit with a ^Q.

psyco is really impressive, but I'm disappointed that I can't demonstrate 
(to friends) counting with it to numbers above 2 billion.

If I remark out the "psyco.bind(spin)" line, there's no problem no matter 
what integer I enter. Can someone explain what the problem with psyco is?

Windows XP, Python 2.3.4
