long int OverflowException

I am seriously stumped by this one problem

I essentially have two functions like so

def a():
 try:
  b()
 except:
  print sys.exc_info()[0]
  print sys.exc_info()[1]
  print sys.exc_info()[2]
 
def b():
 print x.__class__.__name__
 return x 


the print statement in b() says it is an int, but the exception raised in a() claims the long int causes an overflow when trying to cast it to int (I am running Python 2.5)

I can't provide the full code as it is part of a larger code, and I can't decouple it. What I don't understand is why a return value that is clearly an int, is being converted into a long int, and then leading to an exception.

Cheers
