You're responding to something from 2009. It's highly likely things
have changed.

Does the same code cause an error in Python 2.7? That would be the
first thing to check.

Also: You appear to be using Google Groups, which is the Mos Eisley of
the newsgroup posting universe. You'll do far better to instead use
some other means of posting, such as the mailing list:

It's probably a good idea also to search the bug tracker before
posting. It may well be that this has been fixed, in which case the
tracker issue would tell you when the fix went out. Of course, it may
also state that it's not a bug, in which case you'd know why.
