Yes, this works for me in the latest (unstable) developer branch, but fails
in the release branch:

  $ cd cython-unstable
  $ cat rangeloop.pyx
  def func():
      for (a, b) ,c ,d in zip(zip(range(3), range(3)), range(3), range(3)):
          print a, b
          print c
          print d # This line segfault

  $ python2.6 -c 'import pyximport; pyximport.install(); \
                                 import rangeloop; rangeloop.func()'

  $ cd ../cython-release
  $ python2.6 -c 'import pyximport; pyximport.install(); \
                                 import rangeloop; rangeloop.func()'

Not sure why. I'm moving this to the Cython mailing list, we should be able
to help you there.
