Yeah, but try running without psyco first and see if the problem is
really caused by psyco. If it still produces an error, then we can rule
out psyco as the root cause of the problem.

Selective psyco-ing can reduce the amount of memory psyco uses and may
just be slightly slower than full boosting (and sometimes it may
actually become faster in memory constrained situation as less swapping
is needed).
