[SciPy-user] pynetcdf crashing on Python 2.5

I've been using Travis's pynetcdf package (0.7) for doing NetCDF IO for 
a lot of my code.  I recently updated my Gentoo install to use Python 
2.5, and now previously working code crashes (segmentation fault, no 
python exception) when I try to access an array of data.  A GDB 
backtrace puts the error inside _netcdf.so. I haven't recompiled with 
debugging symbols to try to track this down any further.

Has anyone else had any problems with pynetcdf and python 2.5?

I'm aware of the other options (scipy.sandbox.netcdf, 
Scientific.IO.NetCDF, and pycdf).  Is there an accepted package for 
NetCDF in python?
