Today is the start of the Python Bug Weekend. In order to dive into it (when time permits) I am trying to prepare tonight. After reading the Beginners Guide to Python Core Development I checked out the latest version of the 3.2 repository:

~/Workspace $ svn co http://svn.python.org/projects/python/branches/py3k
~/Workspace $ cd py3k

I built:

py3k $ ./configure
py3k $ make
py3k $ cd Doc; make html

and I tested:

py3k $ ./python -m test.regrtest

After a quick scan of the easy issues, I noticed [Issue809163][4] and added a test which I hope will allow the issue to be resolved. My first contribution to Python-Dev.
