I've also had a brief look at CVS python-mode (after patched with the patch I
submitted on sf.net) yesterday -- the trackeback jumping stuff (C-c- et al)
was annoyingly no longer functional, but I noticed no other problems (I think
I also tested completions). I'd very much like to see this python-mode mess
finally sorted out so I'll try to give it a stab tonight, but I can't promise.
I'll post to the list as soon as I've made some progress.

Have you got any idea why this is necessary -- something OS X specific? I
don't think I've encountered this before.
