You should certainly file a bug report (bugs.python.org).  If you want
to debug it yourself and include a patch, that's great.  Otherwise, just
file the report.

    In the case of test_hashlib.py, it segfaulted on the first sha512 test
    when I didn't have the debugging options enabled.  Only after enabling
    debugging did I get FAIL's for the sha512 tests.

    Does anyone know what is causing these failures?

Please be precise about the hw and compiler versions.
