its a Pyrex generated extension module. basically pyrex makes C API calls to the python library and has some custom code in C to do some things that python can not do. pyrex just writes glue between c and python, keeping track of all the nasty reference counting details. if you donwload pyrex and build a sample dll (they have some examples) you will probably see what I mean. i tried it on the Windows platform. to build python you need VisualC++ ver 6 -- ver 7 may also work but if you download a installable distribution it was built w/ ver 6 so you need to compile pyrex stuff w/ that. let me know I can probably built a small dll. the one I was playing w/ is huge like 2meg in size. it may be pyrex specific. however since pyrex is only translating, i suspect that any c extension module might show this problem and there are lots of extension modules on the net for python that we could try.
