Hey folks,

I am hitting this bug very frequently on Fedora 16 where python deadlocks.  I tried to apply the patch in this bug to python.src.rpm currently in Fedora 16, but my local rpmbuild fails with a test error.  After disabling %check rpmbuild fails with these missing files:

    File not found: /home/warren/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/python-2.7.2-5.2.fc16.fork.x86_64/usr/lib64/python2.7/lib-dynload/ossaudiodev.so
    File not found: /home/warren/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/python-2.7.2-5.2.fc16.fork.x86_64/usr/lib64/python2.7/plat-linux2

It seems python is missing some BuildRequires.

Anyhow, who maintains python these days?  Could we please go ahead with a F16 test update?  This is a pretty serious issue. =(
