R. David Murray <rdmur...@bitdance.com> added the comment: Since 3.1 is in final release candidate, a change like this is not appropriate for 3.1.
This error message is generated in PyErr_WriteUnraisable, which is called from many contexts, including __del__ methods. A __del__ method called during shutdown is most likely what is generating the error you are speaking of, but as far as I know the __del__ method has no way to know that it is being called during shutdown in particular. So the proposed fix to the message won't work. The reason this message is so mysterious is that in this particular case there is additional information that normally appears in the message that has apparently also been nullified during shutdown and that token is simply omitted. This appears to be a bug, since the code substitutes <unknown> for other elements that are substituted into the message if they are NULL, but does not do so for the object passed in to the subroutine. Either the fact that the object prints as the empty string is a bug, or <unknown> should be substituted for it. With that bug fixed, the message would read: Exception TypeError: "'NoneType' object is not callable" in <unknown> ignored which is more easily parsed correctly. As long as we're mucking about in that code, though, perhaps a more generic reformatting of the message would be clearer even with that bug fixed. I suggest: The following Exception of type TypeError was raised in <unknown> but was ignored: 'NoneType' object is not callable ---------- components: +Interpreter Core nosy: +r.david.murray priority: -> low stage: -> test needed type: feature request -> behavior _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue6294> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: http://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
