If it's safe for you to do so (copyright/licence etc), it may be worth
posting the code along with your bug report, just in case. I had some
REALLY weird issues from embedding Python that derived, ultimately,
from buggy ref management - one such case came from forgetting to
incref None; it took me a long time to track it down, because the
problem didn't actually surface until the interpreter was shutting
