losing CGI variables in os.environ in Python 2.4

Did something change between 2.3 and 2.4 that would affect os.environ
being populated with CGI variables when using the
BaseHTTPServer/CGIHTTPServer?

I received a bug report from someone trying to run my wiki/blog
software, Leonardo[1] under Python 2.4 on Windows 2000. I was able to
reproduce the problem under Python 2.4 on Windows XP Pro but confirmed
that it worked fine under Python 2.3.

Simply printing out os.environ at the point things like PATH_INFO are
extracted by Leonardo revealed that os.environ contained no CGI-related
variables when run under Python 2.4 but did contain them under 2.3

I can't see in the code for the http server modules that anything
changed in this area. Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance.

Just a fun exercise to unify some of the major input methods for a script into a single dictionary. Here is the output, given a gr.conf file in the same directory with the contents stated below: smitty@localhost ~/proj/mddl4/test $ ./inputs.py {'source_db': '/home/sweet/home.db'} smitty@localhost ~/proj/mddl4/test $ source_db="test_env" ./inputs.py {'source_db': 'test_env'} smitty@localhost ~/proj/mddl4/test $ ./inputs.py -f "test_cli"

If I call os.environ.clear in a python program child processes still see the deleted entries. But when I iterate over the keys like so names = os.environ.keys for k in names: del os.environ then the entries are also deleted for the child processes. Where is the difference? Is this a bug? (Observed in Python 2.5.2)

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
