What're the specifics of the loading problem with kinterbasdb?
AFAIK, kinterbasdb itself runs fine in a debug build of Python. The
egenix mx extensions, which kinterbasdb uses for date/time handling
unless the user specifies otherwise, do not. I've conferred with MAL
on this topic and was told that egenix "doesn't support" running the
extensions in a debug build. I made my own modifications to the mx
extensions so that they work properly in a debug build; I could post
the modified version somewhere for download if you're interested.
