I guess that there is some random factor in place, and for me it looks 
like a C-alike wrong pointer: so for me it's an error in an underlying 
python library implemented in C/C++ (don't know in which language python 
itself is written; I'm assuming that python itself doesn't work with 
pointers). The only remaining question is probably: which library? and 
then the bug could be reassigned.
