[issue17556] os.path.join() converts None to '' by default

2013-03-27 Thread Muhammad Hallaj Subery

New submission from Muhammad Hallaj Subery:

I think the default behavior of os.path.join() when None is passed as the first 
argument should be to translate it to '' by default.

 import os
 os.path.join(None, 'somewhere')
'somewhere'

vs the current

 import os
 os.path.join(None, 'somewhere')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File stdin, line 1, in module
  File /usr/lib/python2.7/posixpath.py, line 68, in join
elif path == '' or path.endswith('/'):
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'endswith'

[issue17555] Creating new processes after importing multiprocessing.managers consumes more and more memory

2013-03-27 Thread Charles-François Natali

Charles-François Natali added the comment:

That's due to a leak in forker-registered handlers:
The _afterfork_registry is never cleared, so spawning processes recursively 
keeps feeling it, which ends up consuming a huge amount of memory and slowing 
process creation greatly.

Could you try the attached patch?

[issue17557] test_getgroups of test_posix can fail on OS X 10.8 if more than 16 groups

2013-03-27 Thread Ned Deily

New submission from Ned Deily:

Due to a change in behavior for OS X 10.8 (seen with 10.8.3), the code added to 
posixmodule.c in Issue7900 to handle an unlimited number of groups no longer 
works.  The code depends on the documented behavior of getgroups(2) failing 
with EINVAL when the grouplist array in the call is too small to hold all 
groups.  This works correctly for 10.6 and 10.7.  Currently in 10.8, such a 
call succeeds and truncates to the first grouplist-size groups.  The getgroups 
function could probably be modified to always call getgroups(0) first to get 
the real length.  But it seems to be a clear regression in 10.8 and breaks 
existing code.  I've opened a bug report with Apple about it.  I'll plan to 
keep this incident open until I hear something back from them.

[issue17546] Document the circumstances where the locals() dict gets updated

2013-03-27 Thread anatoly techtonik

anatoly techtonik added the comment:

Raymond, could you please get the title back? You unintentionally hijacked the 
issue. The Document the circumstances where the locals() dict gets updated is 
not a describing title for this issue - it is one of the possible action items. 
I'd prefer to see a separate issue to document the stuff that blocks this 
one. It is quite evident that this action is required, but IMHO there is not 
enough evidence to conclude that it will be sufficient to close this ticket.

Eric, I need more time to answer your questions.

2013-03-27 Thread Amaury Forgeot d'Arc

Amaury Forgeot d'Arc added the comment:

The previous title, rename type returned by locals() to livedict did not 
describe the reality, since locals() returns a regular dict.
[Would you call x.__dict__ a livedict?]

So either this issue should be closed as invalid, because it's based on 
incorrect understandings of Python internals; or we could improve documentation 
about locals() in order to remove surprising behavior and (real) confusion in 
programmers' minds.

[issue17546] Document the circumstances where the locals() dict gets updated

2013-03-27 Thread anatoly techtonik

anatoly techtonik added the comment:

Eric, here is the code that confirms changed behavior under trace function for 
both Python 2 and 3 - http://bugs.python.org/file15081/localstest.py

I agree that the documentation fix is necessary, and if you say that it is an 
easier sell - I tend to believe you. But with this fix the issue is still not 
fully covered, so it is interesting to know what builds up to the cost of 
renaming if we come to some common point about the type of this 'dict' from the 
user point of view.

[issue17546] Document the circumstances where the locals() dict gets updated

2013-03-27 Thread anatoly techtonik

anatoly techtonik added the comment:

Amaury, from user's point of view (I am not a core developer - I just need to 
troubleshoot complicated Python code) the object (the internal structure) 
returned by locals() has different behavior than a normal dict.

Normal dict in Python is updated by user code (which I as a user can see and 
can inspect for further troubleshooting) and for locals's dict this is not 
correct. 

If dict and locals's object are of the same type, I'd expect them to be 
interchangeable.

By proposing a documentation fix as a final remedy, please think about the 
entry point through which users come to this trap.

Yes this is still relevant and needs doing (and is easy).

The implementation should be similar to:

def patch(self, *args, **kwargs):
# lazy import
from unittest.mock import patch
p = patch(*args, **kwargs)
result = p.start()
self.addCleanup(p.stop)
return result

Plus tests and documentation.

[issue7559] TestLoader.loadTestsFromName swallows import errors

2013-03-27 Thread Michael Foord

Michael Foord added the comment:

My preferred fix is to wrap an exception during import as a test that fails 
instead of an AttributeError. This would definitely be a new feature rather 
than a bugfix - so it could only be in 3.4. 

It could be made available to Python 2.7 through the unittest2 backport.

None of the current patches implement my preferred solution yet.

[issue17554] Compact output for regrtest

2013-03-27 Thread Brett Cannon

Brett Cannon added the comment:

So are you saying you want both the short-form output while running but then 
the whole output upon completion, David? I can understand wanting the summaries 
still in order to sort the skipped tests vs. failures, but not outputting every 
test that succeeded since you can figure that out through a process of 
elimination w/o much issue.

I think instead it would serve us better to have a command to write the tests 
that were run and what happened to a file for use with the -f with successes 
commented out, skips commented out along with the skipped message, and then 
only failures left uncommented for easier re-running of the tests in the same 
order.

[issue17558] gdb debugging python frames in optimised interpreters

2013-03-27 Thread Marcus Cobden

New submission from Marcus Cobden:

I've made some tweaks to the libpython.py util functions to better pick up 
python frames when using a normal python interpreter.

It's not by any means perfect, but it works on my ubuntu-shipped python 
interpreter (with debugging symbols installed, but not running the debug 
interpreter).

It works by finding the top frame via the thread state struct, and then going 
up the frame stack, comparing the stack pointer to a stack pointer in the C 
context.

I'd appreciate some feedback/advice :)

[issue17559] str.is* implementation seem suboptimal for single character strings

2013-03-27 Thread Gaëtan de Menten

New submission from Gaëtan de Menten:

In isspace, isalpha, isalnum and isdigit, I see code like:

/* Shortcut for single character strings */
if (PyString_GET_SIZE(self) == 1 
isspace(*p))
return PyBool_FromLong(1);

Is it intentional to not use:

if (PyString_GET_SIZE(self) == 1))
return PyBool_FromLong(isspace(*p) != 0);

which would be faster when the result is False (but a tad slower when it is 
True because of the extra comparison).

Also, is there a reason (other than historical) why the macros Py_RETURN_TRUE 
and Py_RETURN_FALSE are not used instead of their equivalent functions 
PyBool_FromLong(1) and PyBool_FromLong(0)?

See:

This doesn't work for this example, which was your question.

I still feel like this needs further clarification. For a user this behavior is 
not expected. User is someone who doesn't know the internal details of Python 
interpreter (and may not even remember that dict can be modified by reference). 
If you disagree with me - try to do corridor testing and see how many people 
will compile it in their head and give you the right answer to this example.

[issue17560] problem using multiprocessing with really big objects?

2013-03-27 Thread mrjbq7

New submission from mrjbq7:

I ran into a problem using multiprocessing to create large data objects (in 
this case numpy float64 arrays with 90,000 columns and 5,000 rows) and return 
them to the original python process.

It breaks in both Python 2.7 and 3.3, using numpy 1.7.0 (but with different 
error messages).

It is possible the array is too large to be serialized (450 million 64-bit 
numbers exceeds a 32-bit limit)?

[issue17560] problem using multiprocessing with really big objects?

2013-03-27 Thread Antoine Pitrou

Antoine Pitrou added the comment:

A multiprocessing queue currently uses a 32-bit signed int to encode object 
length (in bytes):

def _send_bytes(self, buf):
# For wire compatibility with 3.2 and lower
n = len(buf)
self._send(struct.pack(!i, n))
# The condition is necessary to avoid broken pipe errors
# when sending a 0-length buffer if the other end closed the pipe.
if n  0:
self._send(buf)

I *think* we need to keep compatibility with the wire format, but perhaps we 
could use a special length value (-1?) to introduce a longer (64-bit) length 
value.

[issue17551] Windows - accessing drive with nothing mounted forces user interaction

2013-03-27 Thread Bob Alexander

Bob Alexander added the comment:

Thanks for the prompt reply!

Your suggested change does change the behavior to exactly the way I think
it should work by default. Tried it on both Windows 7 and Vista; no popups
when accessing a mobile mount drive with nothing in it, just quietly
reports False.

I vote for making this the normal behavior of these file exists sort of
operations.

Hmm, I notice that msvcrt.SetErrorMode is not discussed in the current
Python 3 Standard Library docs...  :-)

[issue17560] problem using multiprocessing with really big objects?

2013-03-27 Thread Richard Oudkerk

Richard Oudkerk added the comment:

 I *think* we need to keep compatibility with the wire format, but perhaps 
 we could use a special length value (-1?) to introduce a longer (64-bit) 
 length value.

Yes we could, although that would not help on Windows pipe connections (where 
byte oriented messages are used instead).  Also, does pickle currently handle 
byte strings larger than 4GB?

But I can't help feeling that multigigabyte arrays should be transferred using 
shared mmaps rather than serialization.  numpy.frombuffer() could be used to 
recreate the array from the mmap.

multiprocessing currently only allows sharing of such shared arrays using 
inheritance.  Perhaps we need a picklable mmap type which can be sent over 
pipes and queues.  (On Unix this would probably require fd passing.)

[issue17560] problem using multiprocessing with really big objects?

2013-03-27 Thread Charles-François Natali

Charles-François Natali added the comment:

 Also, does pickle currently handle byte strings larger than 4GB?

The 2.7 failure is indeed a pickle limitation, which should now be fixed by 
issue #13555.

 On a machine with 256GB of RAM, it makes more sense to send arrays
 of this size than say on a laptop...

Richard was saying that you shouldn't serialize such a large array, that's just 
a huge performance bottleneck. The right way would be to use a shared memory.

 multiprocessing currently only allows sharing of such shared arrays
 using inheritance.

You mean through fork() COW?

  Perhaps we need a picklable mmap type which can be sent over pipes
 and queues.  (On Unix this would probably require fd passing.)

If you use POSIX semaphores, you could pass the semaphore path and use sem_open 
in the other process (but that would mean you can't unlink it right after open).

[issue17546] Document the circumstances where the locals() dict gets updated

2013-03-27 Thread Eric Snow

Eric Snow added the comment:

Okay, I found it.  sys.settrace() ultimately results in the setting of 
tstate-use_tracing to true and sets tstate-c_tracefunc and tstate_c_traceobj 
(see sys_settrace() in Python/sysmodule.c and PyEval_SetTrace() in 
Python/ceval.c).  tstate-c_tracefunc() gets set to trace_trampoline() in 
Python/sysmodule.c and tstate-c_traceobj gets set to your tracing function.

When an execution frame begins, the interpreter sets up tracing.  From 
Python/ceval.c:1124:

/* tstate-c_tracefunc, if defined, is a
   function that will be called on *every* entry
   to a code block.  Its return value, if not
   None, is a function that will be called at
   the start of each executed line of code.
   (Actually, the function must return itself
   in order to continue tracing.)  The trace
   functions are called with three arguments:
   a pointer to the current frame, a string
   indicating why the function is called, and
   an argument which depends on the situation.
   The global trace function is also called
   whenever an exception is detected. */

So trace_trampoline() gets at the start of each block and once for each line of 
Python code.  Each time it calls call_trampoline() (also in 
Python/sysmodule.c).  You'll find that in call_trampoline(), there is a call to 
PyFrame_FastToLocals() just before it calls your tracing function (at that 
point called callback).

When called, PyFrame_FastToLocals() updates the contents of the frame's slow 
locals (f_locals) with the values in the fast locals.  And...wait for 
it...f_locals is the dict that gets returned by locals().

Thus, when tracing is on, the dict returned by locals() gets updated once per 
block and once per line of Python code.  That is exactly what you are seeing.

When tracing is not on, PyFrame_FastToLocals() would only be called when you 
call locals() (inside a function).  It's interesting to note that in that case 
locals() will return the exact same dictionary:

 def f():
... return locals() is locals()
...
 f()
True

Conclusion
--

The bottom line is that the docs for locals() could stand to have a little more 
detail for this case (including a link to the docs for tracing at 
sys.settrace() or wherever).  However, the behavior here is--at present--a 
CPython implementation detail.  Any note would likely say as much; something 
like this:

.. function:: locals()

   ...

   Each call to locals() will return the same dictionary, updated to
   the contents of the current local symbol table.

   .. impl-detail::

  Under tracing and profiling in CPython, the dict returned by
  ``locals()`` will be updated at the beginning of each code block
  and at each line of code.  See :func:`sys.settrace`.

The note is really only meaningful for functions since class bodies and modules 
don't use fast locals and f_locals is set to f_globals (i.e. locals() == 
globals()).  However, that point is superfluous to the above note since it 
remains true either way.

Gotcha, for clarification, my original use case was to *create* them

I should also point out that the following from that note may actually also be 
a CPython implementation detail:

   Each call to locals() will return the same dictionary, updated to

We'd want to be sure that such should be expected from all implementations 
(since it basically adds to the language specification).  Otherwise it should 
also go in an impl-detail note.

[issue17561] Add socket.create_server_sock() convenience function

2013-03-27 Thread Charles-François Natali

Charles-François Natali added the comment:

I think that's a good idea.

However, there's a problem with the implementation: if one passes  or None as 
address on a dual-stack node, the resulting socket will be either IPv4 bound to 
INADDR_ANY, or IPv6 bound to IN6ADDR_ANY, whereas one would expect to be bound 
both in IPv4 and IPv6. In the later case, some platforms (like Linux) use 
IPv4-mapped addresses by default, some others (e.g. some versions of FreeBSD) 
don't. So, depending on IPV6_V6ONLY setting, binding to IPV6 any won't accept 
IPv4 connections. Also, some platforms don't support mapped addresses at all, 
so the only portable solution is to bind both to 0.0.0.0 and ::, whith two 
different sockets, and use select() to accept both.

So it would maybe make sense to expose a ServerSocket class, with an accept 
method which would do the right thing (as an added bonus, it could expose 
set_reuse_addr(bool), since SO_REUSEADDR have subtle semantic differences 
between Unix and Windows).

[issue17554] Compact output for regrtest

No, what I'd prefer is that the current print it as it runs behavior not 
change, but that the list of skip reasons be displayed at the end. after all 
the tests have completed.  This is probably not a realistic request, so I'm 
fine with just having Ezio's version as an option.  

To be clear: I don't have any use for the list of passed tests other than it 
keeping me informed of the test run progress, and for that use I want it to 
scroll up my display, not overwrite on one line.

That said, I don't have *strong* feelings about this :)

using mmaps backed by proper files (since posix shared memeory uses up 
space in /dev/shm which is limited).

By using fd passing you can get the operating system to do ref counting 
on the mmaps and not worry about when to unlink.

[issue17560] problem using multiprocessing with really big objects?

2013-03-27 Thread Charles-François Natali

Charles-François Natali added the comment:

 Through fork, yes, but shared rather than copy-on-write.

There's a subtlety: because of refcounting, just treating a COW object
as read-only (e.g. iteratin on the array) will trigger a copy
anyway...

 I assume you mean shared memory and shm_open(), not semaphores and
 sem_open().

Yes ;-)

  I don't think shm_open() really has any advantages over
 using mmaps backed by proper files (since posix shared memeory uses up
 space in /dev/shm which is limited).

File-backed mmap() will incur disk I/O (although some of the data will
probably sit in the page cache), which would be much slower than a
shared memory. Also, you need corresponding disk space.
As for the /dev/shm limit, it's normally dimensioned according to the
amount of RAM, which is normally, which is in turn dimensioned
according to the working set.

[issue17561] Add socket.create_server_sock() convenience function

2013-03-27 Thread Giampaolo Rodola'

Giampaolo Rodola' added the comment:

What you say is right but whether the kernel supports an hybrid IPv4/6 stack or 
not there's not much we can do about it anyway.
Exactly what are you suggesting with the ServerSocket class you mentioned? What 
do you expect it to do?
Note that platforms supporting the dual-stack are already supported. This:

 socket.create_server_socket((::, 0))

...on Linux will create a socket which is reachable both as ::1 and 
127.0.0.1.
So if I'm not mistaken the alias for specifying listen on all interfaces for 
both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses would be :: instead of  / None.
We can document that.

On Linux disk I/O only occurs when fsync() or close() are called. 
FreeBSD has a MAP_NOSYNC flag which gives Linux behaviour (otherwise 
dirty pages are flushed every 30-60).

Once the file has been unlink()ed then any sensible operating system 
should realize it does not need to sync the file.

 On Linux disk I/O only occurs when fsync() or close() are called.

What?
Writeback occurs depending on the memory pressure, percentage of used

closing it, you'll see that there's disk activity (or use
iostat/vmstat).

 FreeBSD has a MAP_NOSYNC flag which gives Linux behaviour (otherwise
 dirty pages are flushed every 30-60).

It's the same on Linux, depending on your mount options, data will be
committed to disk every 5 seconds or so, when the journal is
committed.

 Once the file has been unlink()ed then any sensible operating system
 should realize it does not need to sync the file.

Why?
Even if you delete the file right after open, if you write data to it,
when the amount of data written fills your caches, the data has to go
somewhere, even if only to make it available to the current process
upon read()...

Charles-François Natali added the comment:

 What you say is right but whether the kernel supports an hybrid IPv4/6 stack
 or not there's not much we can do about it anyway.
 Exactly what are you suggesting with the ServerSocket class you mentioned?
 What do you expect it to do?

There's a confusion.
Dual-stack merely means that the host supports both IPv4 and IPv6 natively.
The IPV6_V6ONLY tunable is just a way to enable or not IPv4-mapped
addresses (i.e. ::::IPv4 address) so that an IPv4 client can
connect to this socket. It can be set system-wide, or on a socket
basis.

 Note that platforms supporting the dual-stack are already supported. This:

 socket.create_server_socket((::, 0))

 ...on Linux will create a socket which is reachable both as ::1 and
 127.0.0.1.

Try the same thing after:
# echo 1  /proc/sys/net/ipv6/bindv6only

It won't accept IPv4 connections anymore.

And that's the default on many (most) platforms, e.g. FreeBSD and
OpenBSD (I think it's also true for Windows).

So the bottom line is that with the current code, on some - most -
platforms, we'll only accept IPv6 connections (and since you iterate
over getaddrinfo() in an unspecified order you may very well bind to
IPv4 only first, in which case you'll only accept IPv4 clients).

The proper way to procedd, on platforms which don't support unsetting
IPV6_V6ONLY, is to use two sockets, one in IPv4, and one IPv6, and use
select() to accept connections.

This would propably belong to an overriden accept() method in a
ServerSocket class, since it's far from trivial.

[issue17560] problem using multiprocessing with really big objects?

2013-03-27 Thread Charles-François Natali

Charles-François Natali added the comment:

 I meant when there is no memory pressure.

http://lwn.net/Articles/326552/

The kernel page cache contains in-memory copies of data blocks
belonging to files kept in persistent storage. Pages which are written
to by a processor, but not yet written to disk, are accumulated in
cache and are known as dirty pages. The amount of dirty memory is
listed in /proc/meminfo. Pages in the cache are flushed to disk after
an interval of 30 seconds. Pdflush is a set of kernel threads which
are responsible for writing the dirty pages to disk, either explicitly
in response to a sync() call, or implicitly in cases when the page
cache runs out of pages, if the pages have been in memory for too
long, or there are too many dirty pages in the page cache (as
specified by /proc/sys/vm/dirty_ratio).


 FreeBSD has a MAP_NOSYNC flag which gives Linux behaviour (otherwise
 dirty pages are flushed every 30-60).

 It's the same on Linux, depending on your mount options, data will be
 committed to disk every 5 seconds or so, when the journal is
 committed.

 Googling suggsests that MAP_SHARED on Linux is equivalent to MAP_SHARED
 | MAP_NOSYNC on FreeBSD.  I don't think it has anything to do with mount
 options.


MAP_NOSYNCCauses data dirtied via this VM map to be flushed to
   physical media only when necessary (usually by the
   pager) rather than gratuitously.
[...]


This just means that it will reduce synchronous writeback, but
writeback will still occur (by what they call the pager).

On Linux, writeback can be done by background kernel threads
(pdflush), or synchrously on behalf of the process.

The mount option thing is the following:
if the file system is mounted with data=journal or data=ordered, data
is written to disk before corresponding metadata is committed. And
metadata is written when the journal is committed, by default every 5
seconds:

man mount:

ext3

   commit=nrsec   data={journal|ordered|writeback}
  Specifies the journalling mode for file data.  Metadata
is always journaled.  To use modes other than ordered on the root
filesystem, pass the mode to the kernel
  as boot parameter, e.g.  rootflags=data=journal.

  journal
 All data is committed into the journal prior to
being written into the main filesystem.

  ordered
 This is the default mode.  All data is forced
directly out to the main file system prior to its metadata being
committed to the journal.

  writeback
 Data ordering is not preserved - data may be
written into the main filesystem after its metadata has been committed
to the journal.  This is  rumoured  to
 be the highest-throughput option.  It guarantees
internal filesystem integrity, however it can allow old data to appear
in files after a crash and journal
 recovery.

   commit=nrsec
  Sync all data and metadata every nrsec seconds. The
default value is 5 seconds. Zero means default.

 The Linux man page refuses to specify

MAP_SHARED
  Share this mapping. Updates to the mapping are visible to other
  processes that map this file, and are carried through to the
  underlying file. **The file may not actually be updated until
  msync(2) or munmap() is called.**

*may*,:just as fsync() is required to make sure data is committed to
disk for a file, msync() is required for a mapping. But data is
committed asynchronously or synchronously depending on different
criterias (ratio of dirty pages, free memory, dirty pages age, etc).

 Can you demonstrate a slowdown with a benchmark?

I could, but I don't have to: a shared memory won't incur any I/O or
copy (except if it is swapped).
A file-backed mmap will incur a *lot* of I/O: really, just try
writting a 1GB file, and you'll see your disk spin, or use cat
/proc/diskstats.

[issue17563] Excessive resizing of dicts when used as a cache

2013-03-27 Thread Mark Shannon

New submission from Mark Shannon:

If a dict is used a cache, e.g. in functools.lru_cache, 
the reduced resize factor in 3.3 can cause excessive resizing.
This can lead to a significant performance regression.

When the the number of deletions and insertions is roughly in balance
the reduced head room in the dict (compare to 3.2) causes a large increase in 
the number of resizes.

The reason for this above-linear increase is that with fewer dummy keys, the 
chance of a dummy being overwritten is reduced *and* is there is less overhead 
as well.
A dictionary with 128 items will have a capacity of 256 and only 43 dummy keys. 
If it had a capacity of 512 (as it would have done in 3.2) then it will have 
214 keys, making a resize at least 10 times less frequent.

Changing the growth function from round_up_to_power_2(used*2) to
round_up_to_power_2(used*2+capacity/2) the desirable property of only doubling 
in size when growing can be preserved, yet ensuring sufficient overhead when 
used as a cache.

Consider a dict which grows to n items and then remains that size, with 
frequent deletions and insertions, using the proposed growth function:

ItemsCapacity Steady state Capacity
 on reaching ncapacity under 3.2
  28  8   8
  48  16  16 
  616 32  32 
  816 32  32 
  10   16 64  64 
  12   32 64  64 
  15   32 64  64 
  20   32 128 128
  30   64 128 128
  50   128256 256
  80   128512 512
  128  256512 512


Thanks to Raymond Hettinger for bringing this to my attention.

Indeed, this is almost always a (common) ISP DNS server misconfiguration.  
Well, they would claim they are helping their users, but we know better.

Not much we can do about it, except perhaps add an explanatory note to the test 
failure message (if assertRaises allows that...I think I requested that feature 
but I don't know if it has been added).

[issue17564] test_urllib2_localnet fails

2013-03-27 Thread Mark Shannon

Mark Shannon added the comment:

Bah, stupid BT :(
I opened the URL in my browser and got a helpful message telling me Sorry, 
the website sadflkjsasf.i.nvali.d. cannot be found

Perhaps we should just remove this test?
I suspect this is only going to become more common.

[issue17560] problem using multiprocessing with really big objects?

You are right.

[issue17564] test_urllib2_localnet fails

2013-03-27 Thread R. David Murray

R. David Murray added the comment:

I think we should instead have it email the ISP that their DNS is broken :)

Seriously, though, complain to your ISP.  My ISP at least provides name servers 
that don't have this feature if you prefer to use them, and they are the 
default for business accounts.  So they are being stupid, but less stupid than 
the original offender.

If you run a local DNS forwarding server, you can configure it to ignore the 
wildcard records from your upstream.  IMO everyone should run a local DNS 
caching/forwarding server for both this reason and for performance :)

If that test is run by default, we could change it to only run with -uall.  
Then normal users wouldn't see it.

Now, all that said, I won't be crushed if the test gets deleted, but I will be 
very very sad about what that event says about modern ISPs.

[issue12466] sporadic failures of test_close_fds and test_pass_fds in test_subprocess

2013-03-27 Thread Charles-François Natali

Charles-François Natali added the comment:

Hummm...
For those experiencing failures when /proc is mounted: do you have a 
grsecurity-patched kernel?
If RBAC is enabled, /proc/self/fd is empty, so this approach won't work...

[issue16676] Segfault under Python 3.3 after PyType_GenericNew

2013-03-27 Thread Mark Shannon

Mark Shannon added the comment:

This issue should be considered closed.

PyType_GenericNew is a convenience function for typeobjects to put in their 
tp_new slots. Calling it directly only works for some types. 
It worked in 3.2 for dict, but that was happenstance.

You could use 
((PyTypeObject *)type_object)-tp_new((PyTypeObject *)type_object, NULL, NULL);
to call the new method directly, but it would be better to call the 
type_object:
PyObject_CallObject(type_object, NULL);

[issue17565] segfaults during serialization

2013-03-27 Thread Daniele Raimondi

New submission from Daniele Raimondi:

pickle and cPickle cause really often segfaults when dumping or loading user 
defined classes. It happens with python 2.7.3 on 64bits architecture, with any 
protocol (0,1,2).
I attach an example of class afflicted by this problem.
Solutions anyone?

[issue17491] Consolidate traceback.format_tb and traceback.print_tb

2013-03-27 Thread Benjamin Peterson

Benjamin Peterson added the comment:

Thank you for the patch. It seems like it would make more sense to implement 
print_tb in terms of extract_tb. That is, print_tb should iterate through the 
result of extract_tb and do its printing.

[issue17559] str.is* implementation seem suboptimal for single character strings

2013-03-27 Thread STINNER Victor

STINNER Victor added the comment:

If you would like to improve Python, you have to focus on the development 
version which is Python 3.4. In this version, the code is different:

if (length == 1)
return PyBool_FromLong(
Py_UNICODE_ISSPACE(PyUnicode_READ(kind, data, 0)));

I'm not sure that having a special case for string of 1 character provide any 
speed up...
