I was having a Python crash (Windows XP tells me «python.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconveniences... Please tell Microsoft about this problem...»)
The crash disappeared after upgrading pysqlite from 2.0.3 to 2.0.4.
The easiest way to reproduce the crash is to install a current Lino snapshot and then run the following code:
from lino.apps.addrbook import demo demo.startup(big=True)
- happens with Python 2.3.4 or Python 2.4.1 and pysqlite 2.0.3
- does not happen always, but relatively often.
- does not occur systematically in a certain place.
