Sometimes seeing the whole traceback gives clues as 
to whats throwing the wobbly, without the full stack 
its hard to tell.

However before worrying about that I'd add a print 
statement to print out all those values:


I suspect the memory error might be an indexing error, 
running off the end of the string or similar... But lets 
see those values at the point of failure.

For your own benefit it might be easier just to use the debugger, 
just set a breakpoint on the line then check the values when the 
debugger stops...
