I should have been slightly more clear, the patch is in the python  
repository in both the trunk and 2.4 maintainance, it is not in the  
universal tree.  I don't really intent to do any more work on that  
tree, the universal patches for 2.5 need to be backported to 2.4-main  
instead. I've mostly done that, but haven't checked those changes in  
yet. Getting those in is a good goal for this weekend.

BTW. I ended up applying a slightly different patch to avoid backward  
incompatibilities (the timeout argument).

Tell me about it, it took me considerable time to recover the e-mail  
with has' original patch because he didn't upload it as a patch to  
the SF tracker.

Get the one in python2.5, that definitely works. It uses an eventloop  
from the OS7 era, but that's just because I didn't want to research  
how to do a CarbonEvt loop that times out after a second.
