Segmentation fault (core dumped)
The software dates from 2010 and may be obsolete or no longer be
supported. I have emailed the author/maintainer to see if this is the
case. However, faulty python code that doesn't seem to link to other modules (in C or C++) should not cause a dump.
I also note the Segmentation Fault message does not appear in the starndard error file.

I don't see how this could be Python's error. The message
AL lib: (EE) alc_cleanup: 1 device not closed
is caused by not cleaning up audio handles properly. This may be result of wrong ctypes usage in pyglet/media/drivers/openal/lib_* (in the sense that there is no deallocation/deinitialization code.
I can't help you here, sorry. I'm closing as cantfix - if you still think that the error is in Python after communication with upstream, feel free to reopen this bug.
