Compiling current 3.1 and 3.2 show this warning:

"""
Python/sysmodule.c:1378: warning: offset outside bounds of constant string
"""

This is a bit scary. Could be a security/stability hazard?.

This was introduced in 7327b4dbd4f0 and related changesets.

The problem doesn't affect 2.7 because of d52b1faa7b11. I would suggest to upport that changeset to 3.1 and 3.2.

Sorry, the correct changeset was 5cf8f6da8743.
