But this doesn't happen in other versions of python. Also what I did is something like this:
bala@bala$ python
...
...
>>> help()
...
...
...
help > modules

It is after this I see it dumping. And I see this only with 2.6.6. I have other versions in other machines(all running Debian) and none of them crash. In my opinion, a seg fault doesn't look good. Of course, if we can't do much about it, I don't have a problem closing it down. core But a segv looks bad to the beginner, who is more likely to use this. In fact, I was using that just to show a beginner how to get help :(
