Re: reportbug/python segfault

	Well, I'm not able to track down the exact problem, but
the python2.3_2.3.4-18_amd64.deb package currently available from
alioth is hosed.  I attached my sources.list for reference.

	Here's what I've tried so far.  First I did 'apt-get
source python2.3' which as per my other recent e-mail grabs
python2.3_2.3.4-16.  Building this on my system using
dpkg-buildpackage and the necessary dependencies produces a
working binary which does not segfault when reportbug goes to
query the Debian BTS.  I also grabbed the original tar and diff
files via http://packages.debian.org/ for python2.3_2.3.4-18 and
built again using dpkg-buildpackage.  Again, this produces a
working binary.  I compiled both -16 and -18 with and without
-ggdb.  All four versions worked.

	It's only the version available currently on alioth which
breaks.  Not sure how that's even possible really unless the
build environment which is producing the package is using a
different version of gcc.  Anyway, since this is specific to the
current amd64 gcc-3.4 repository, I'll leave it at that.  Maybe
someone on this list can shed some light on the problem.

"1. Resolved, that the several States composing, the United
States of America; are not united on the principle of unlimited
submission to their general government; but that, by a compact
under the style and title of a Constitution for the United
States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a General
Government for special purposes,delegated to that government
certain definite powers, reserving, each State to itself, the
residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that
whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its
acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force: that to this
compact each State acceded as a State, and is an integral party,
its co-States forming, as to itself, the other party: that the
government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or
final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself;
since that would have made its discretion, and not the
Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all
other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each
party has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of
infractions as of the mode and measure of redress."
