Does plpython pass its regression tests for you (I'd suppose not)?

For me on Fedora 10 x86_64, CVS HEAD plus python 2.5.2 passes regression
but the given example still dumps core.  postmaster log says

postgres: tgl regression [local] SELECT: Objects/stringobject.c:107: PyString_FromString: Assertion `str != ((void *)0)' failed.
LOG:  server process (PID 4714) was terminated by signal 6: Aborted

Me either.  Something is pretty bad in python-land, it seems.
