Well, changing cvs from 
helps.  That is, everything seems to work fine with the cvs sources
tagged r221c1.

Then, is it really necessary to mess up the cvs tags so much? Why
isn't it possible to have a single python-2.2 branch which one could
follow to get all the stuff that's incorporated into that version? [1]

There are huge differences between release22-maint and r221c1, it
seems from the number of patches applied when going from one to the
other.  But then some files are in the same (non-main) branch.  ???

Thanks for all your work, and thank you for the quick help again.
