For example: a = list(xrange(count)) instead of the list comprehension ?

I've tried list(xrange(count)) and range(count), and those don't fail.

    a = []
    for i in range(count):
    b = []
    for i in range(count):

does fail.

I've just tried locally building 2.6.1 on my gutsy laptop, and
it still fails with that.

I've built an i386-arch KVM VM, and it doesn't crash there.  (It
does crash on a very similar x86-64 VM.)

Yes.  (Some print statements would have made that clearer.)

Other ideas I'm planning:
 * try a python --with-pydebug build
 * stub out parts of jcc initialization.  (Obviously this could just move the bug around.)
 * fiddle with the JVM's GC parameters
 * see if setting a hardware watchpoint earlier catches where the data is being changed, or
if it seems to be being put in the list wrong.
