Thank you for filing this bug report.
Looking at the backtrace I see that the problem is an invalid call to "free" in frame #4, as called by "proc_requete" which is a function wrapped in Python by ~/Logiciels_bioinfo/remoteacnuc/acnucmodule.so, which seems to be a module that you've built yourself:
#3 0x0000003ac3274ac6 in malloc_printerr (action=3,
str=0x3ac333c4a8 "free(): invalid pointer", ptr=<value optimized out>)
buf = "00000000020d6220"
cp = <value optimized out>
#4 0x00007fb7e46d6191 in proc_requete ()
#5 0x0000003acea43b33 in PyObject_Call (func=0x7fb7ead5eab8,
arg=<value optimized out>, kw=<value optimized out>)
result = 0x7fb7ead65081
call = 0x3acea805f0 <PyCFunction_Call>
So as it stands, this looks like a bug in your version of "acnucmodule.so", rather than in python itself. Is a version of this module in Fedora? Is it open source? (See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/SciTech and the list at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/SciTech/BioinformaticsWishList for some notes on Fedora bioinformatics code)
I'm going to close this bug, with the resolution "NOTABUG", as it's not a bug in our python rpms themselves (though obviously it _is_ a bug).
Hope this is helpful; I'm sorry that I can't be of more help.
