Somehow I missed the original post: did you get a core dump?  The
next thing to do is examine it under gdb.

If it's recurring, recompile python with -g to generate debugging
symbols, so you'll have an easier time examining the dump.  You can even
run the whole interpreter under gdb, though doing that for 33 days might
be uncharted territory.
