I have upgraded to lion and python 2.7.2 and I have several scripts that I have been running for over a year as dameons are now crashing with errors that I cannot interpret. Any help will be GREATLY appreciated as I am dead in the water in terms of using Python. Below is the error and full problem report. Thanks so much.

Thanks for the reply. This is weird because Python does not fully crash but periodically it will throw the error I included in my last post but the script is still working. When looking in the console there are multiple entries with Python_<current date>.mini_crash with the same system crash report that I included. In this test I ran the app from the command line and not as a daemon but the results are the same. When I have tried python 2.6 on the same machine things run fine. The problem seems to be with the apple included 2.7 that came with Lion. Lastly I am not sure what you mean by "run from a system Python before" Here is a screen shot of the console messages http://screencast.com/t/qDjnMb3KYS Thanks so much.
