I wish I got a backtrace, then I would probably have it all worked out by now. 

I've played with it a bit and appears to _not_ be a module problem per se. (I 
also got it to crash without the popen() call, but using vanilla python 
code.) I ran it all through valgrind and it appears to be a memory problem. 
I've also fixed a small memory (new/delete new[]/delete[] mismatch) in 

More info once I've tested the fix out.
