[Pythonmac-SIG] Appscript and Snow Leopard

I have a Python script that I've been using to communicate back and
forth with iTunes via py-appscript -- it's worked fine for a long

Snow Leopard seems to have broken it -- everytime I run the script, it
stops, and then exits, claiming that one of the commands has timed
out. It's never the same place in the process twice, so its not due to
any data issue. An attempt to mimic the basic communication in
rb-appscript resulted in a similar error. It's as though iTunes
decides after a set period of time to stop responding to appscript

I'm stumped as to how to work around this issue. Anybody have any ideas?
