[Pythonmac-SIG] timeout of connection?

Thanks, I'll try the fix when I get home. However, I should reiterate
that I'm not seeing a timeout (which would cause an exception,
right?). It's just that I (eventually) issue an applescript command
which seems to go nowhere.
As I understand the id-rollover bug:
1) it will cause events which want a reply to eventually timeout.
2) which would trigger a python exception
I'm not sure how that would be at play here since:
1) the command I'm sending doesn't (apparently) need a reply
2) I'm not getting exceptions.
Did I missunderstand something?
