Thanks for the suggestion.  Here is the interface string, and a Python
script that does the check:


Running the script with MacPy 2.3.3 on 10.2.8 gives a segfault.  Running 
it with /usr/bin/python works fine.  I've also tried it on a Sun machine
with python2.2.2 and a linux machine with 2.3.3 and it works fine on those,
too.  It appears this is a MacPy 2.3.3 bug (presumably in the re module).
I will copy this info to Pythonmac-Sig in the hopes that Jack or someone
else there can help.  I posted the original problem there with no response

If anyone out there is running Jaguar, I'd appreciate it if you'd download
the script and text and run it, and let us know if you get a segfault.
