I'm using the megahal mh_python module to make a bot instance learn from
a several 100 files. The code works as it should for 4-6 files before
crashing with this error message "Fatal error: deallocating None" There
isn't much documentation on this anywhere.

Is your mh_python module written in C/C++ or Python?  If it's written
in C or C++ check your Py_DECREF calls.  You are probably doubly
decrementing some object which at times refers to Py_None.  Do that
enough and you eventually try to deallocate it.

In fact, it does appear that the Megahal python wrapper is written
in C.  I don't know where the source is, but it's almost certain the
problem lies there, not in the Python interpreter core.  I suggest you
contact the Megahal author(s).
