I don't get why you care so much about that file. It's useful to debug a  
crash in python.exe, but I can't see any other useful purpose (if you only  
have the python executable and the .pdb available).

There is a single source package shared by all platforms. You can download  
and compile it, and you'll get your own version of python.pdb if you like.
