"import ctypes" causes segfault on read-only filesystem

This regression was introduced in python-2.6.6 and exists in all the later versions.

To reproduce run python -c "import ctypes" on read-only filesystem:


(gdb) file python3.2
Reading symbols from /usr/bin/python3.2...done.
(gdb) run -c "import ctypes"
Starting program: /usr/bin/python3.2 -c "import ctypes"
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
