With Python 2.3.2 on Mandrake 9.2  I ran into trouble with segfaults and 

I traced the problem to bsddb module in Python 2.3.2.

Apparently it segfaults under my configuration when trying to open a file.

If you are running Python 2.3.2 could you try

import bsddb


and see if that works for you.

I fixed the problem by remmoving _bsddb.so  (so that anydbm doesn't use 
the bsddb module as a db).

Now, weave works fine.

Could somebody else veryify to see if bsddb is working on Python 2.3.2 
for you?
