test_deque fails on win64 buildbot:
  AssertionError: 'deque([7, 8, 9], maxlen=%Id)' != 'deque([7, 8, 9],

A PY_FORMAT_SIZE_T format is incorrectly used with PyUnicode_FromFormat.
The correct format here is "%zd". PY_FORMAT_SIZE_T should be reserved
for the OS printf routines, PyOS_snprintf, PySys_WriteStderr.

The attached patch replaces 
   "%" PY_FORMAT_SIZE_T "%d"

Looks good to me.

You're right, Chris, I didn't think of that...

Since not all platforms support "%zd" the patch has to be rewritten.
May be PY_FORMAT_SIZE_T isn't correctly defined in Include/pyport.h for
the used "C" library.

No, and this is the reason of the patch:
PyUnicode_FromFormat and PyErr_Format do not use the platform printf.

The code (in Objects/unicodeobject.c) is platform-independent; %zd is
the way to print a ssize_t variable on all platforms.

My only observation is that %zd does not exist before python2.5, and the
code of "multiprocessing" currently seems to be compatible with python
2.4. I don't know if this is important.

Did I miss something? or some joke I do not understand?

It was a (lame attempt at a) joke... sorry :D

Jumping to "release blocker", since it causes a buildbot to fail.
Review needed.

The patch is fine, please apply.

You forgot to update Parser/; I did it in r66379.
