Ah, backwards masking C heaps!  If you look at the whole thing, it
says:

    'natas fo rial eht retne ton ot dna dnuora nrut'

Actually the tale gets weirder.  With a Python 2.2.1 --with-pydebug
build there is no crash at all.  With a Python 2.1.3 built w/ gcc 3.1
and -g and -O2 I get no crash but this exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "crash.py", line 8, in ?
    list(x)
SystemError: error return without exception set

With a Python 2.1.3 built w/gcc 3.1 and just -g (no -O2) I get some
weird worst-of-both-worlds:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "crash.py", line 8, in ?
    list(x)
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

So I'm totally confuzzled and am sick of wasting time on this, so I
think I'll just trust Python 2.2.1.
