The most likely cause of this is that you DECREF'd an object when you
shouldn't have, or failed to INCREF one when you should have. Check
over your object usage; if you can narrow down the "Do some stuff" bit
to the one function call that causes the crash, it'll help you figure
out where the error is.

Hope that helps!
