[SciPy-user] pydoc bug?

Hi

when applying PyDoc on modules which import (parts of) scipy (version 
0.3.2) it keeps running literaly for hours until I get a long Traceback 
ending with
...
"/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/
python2.3/sre.py", line 137, in search
   return _compile(pattern, flags).search(string)
  RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded

Outcommenting scipy imports helps. Now, since pydoc is running just 
fine on anything else I have, I'm wondering where the problem is. Is 
this a known bug (I couldn't find it anywhere)? Is there a different 
way to solve the problem? Is it a problem of my system (still Apple's 
python 2.3 on OS X 10.3.9 - I intend to change end of the week). And 
finally: Should I file a bug report?

Cheers
Christian
