Description of problem:
Python versions higher than 2.2, but prior to 2.2.2 crashes when trying to
import an ExtensionClasses module (ZODB, the persistence database used by Zope
for example have a few of these).
There are two solutions, either upgrade to 2.2.2 which was released some time
ago or apply the patch that's attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile and install ZODB (any versions)
2. run python
3. type "import ZODB"
Actual Results: Python crashes
Expected Results: It shouldn't have crashed

This makes ExtensionClasses work with python 2.2.1 again.
This would make a good candidate for a bugfix release. Will try to release a
python 2.2.2 package in Raw Hide. I'll let you know when it's ready.
Can you please grab the python packages from rahide and give them a try? They
are python 2.2.2 packages.
Misa, where can i find them? I just looked at:
And it appears that they haven't landed yet. Maybe i'm looking at the wrong place.
Yes, i just tried to compile zodb, it seems to work fine now.
