I don't have access to the system that i had the problems with
tonight, but i'll hopefully have the time tomorrow when I'm in the
office and have ssh on the machine.

I di your test on my workstation at home (512M RAM, 500Mhz Athlon)
an everything worked fine. Since the RAM is much more than on the
other box, i also tried:

dd if=/dev/zero of=foo/zeroes bs=16k count=65536
in order to create a bigger time, but the Phyton-process never used
more than about 5% of the memory according to top - that's how it
should be.

more info follows tomorrow night or wednesday morning (CET)
