Today again somebody commented on probably simplest patch I ever attempted contribute to some free software. And it memorized me the funny fact that this simple change lies for five years in bugtracker without single comment from developers. Only occasionally some random hacker founds it and ask why such simple issue has not yet been solved. Latest change in bug adds flag, that this is still broken in all recent Python versions including 3.0 :-).
