Hi Larry,
      It's in the C code mainly because the buffer is an input to the
driver. The driver takes a char* as input and I didn't want to pass a
char* from python -> swig -> C since swig has memory leaks passing
Do you think this is a Python issue or a Red Hat issue? I'm going to
try it on my windows machine now and see what happens.

thanks! Lil
