indeed it was. Seems I have made a C extension class with unusual properties. It 
creates instances OK, but they have no __class__ attribute and when I try to run 
type(instance) I get this segfault. My silly Pmw based program is running over 
lots of attributes trying to establish where things come from and what they are 
so randomly tryes to run inspect.routine over one of the bad instances.
