Unrelated to this bug, I would like to have the ability to remove the 
reference to the frame from the traceback object. Specifically so that 
the traceback object could be stored for a while without keeping all 
the locals alive as well.

So, periodically I test to see if python allows that. Python 2.6 gave 
some strange results compared to 2.5.2:

...     x = dskjfds
... except:

...     t, v, tb = sys.exc_info()
...
>>> tb

>>> dir(tb)
['tb_frame', 'tb_lasti', 'tb_lineno', 'tb_next']
>>> tb.tb_frame
<frame object at 0x01371598>
>>> tb.tb_frame = None
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: 'traceback' object has only read-only attributes (assign 
to .tb_frame)
