The xmlrpclib module in the standard library will use a 3rd party C extension called "sgmlop" if it is present.

The last version of PyXML (0.8.4) includes this module, but it causes crashes with Python 2.5 due to the use of mismatched memory allocation/deallocation functions (PyObject_NEW and PyMem_DEL).

It is unlikely that sgmlop will be fixed, as PyXML is no longer maintained.  Therefore sgmlop support should be removed from xmlrpclib.

(In case you're wondering why anyone would install PyXML with Python 2.5 anyway:  there are still some 3rd party libraries which depend upon PyXML, such as ZSI and twisted).
