mingw extension modules hang


I'm having some problems with scripts using Python extension modules compiled
using mingw.

* Some of them work fine if I run them from a command prompt. However, if I
double click on them, or run them from within IDLE, they seem to hang.
* Other scripts always seem to hang, even if I start them from the command

If I try running the extension module through gdb and I manage to interrupt
it, it seems to be hanging in
_C__loewis_rele ase_python_PCBu ild_libpython24 _a_iname()

Could this have anything to do with the mixing of MSVCRT and MSVCR71, or do
issues related to that have a different signature?

It's a fairly complex extension module, requiring Boost.Python and Blitz,
using scons for the building of the dll, rather than distutils.

Needless to say, they run fine under Linux.


Version: GnuPG v1.4.4 (GNU/Linux)

Ok, I know there are already a million posts on this group about getting Python to build with MinGW. I've been through many of them, and have still not found a good comprehensive way to accomplish this. I've got Cygwin 5.1 with GCC 3.3.3 on it. I'm using Python 2.4. Note: You invoke the mingwin compiler *indirectly*, by running gcc with the -mno-cygwin option. So first of all, I tried exporting CC='gcc -mno-cygwin', configuring,
