Mysterious argument count error to __new__

I'm having problems with JPype and am trying to change the way
it creates Python classes as proxies for Java classes and interfaces.
I'm trying to get around "inconsiste nt mro" problems, but in doing
so, I've run into a real mystery.

Here's the original code. It first makes a metaclass, then makes a
class using that metaclass.

metaclass = type.__new__(ty pe, name+"$$Static" , tuple(meta_base s),
members['__metaclass__'] = metaclass
result = type.__new__(me taclass, name, tuple(bases), members)

I'm getting an error on the first call to __new__, but I want to see
if my "bases" list is acceptable, putting aside for the moment that
"meta_bases " is having a problem.

So I put this line directly ahead of the three quoted above:
type.__new__(ty pe, 'aoeu', tuple(bases), members)
You can see that this is essentially exactly the same as the first of
the three, just using a different name, a diffent bases tuple, and a
different dictionary. Whereas the first of the three gets an mro kind
of error, when I insert this new line, it gets:
type.__new__(ty pe, 'aoeu', tuple(bases), members)
TypeError: __new__() takes exactly 2 arguments (4 given)

How is it possible that I get a number-of-arguments error when the
following line, with the same number of arguments, does not?
(This can't even be relevant, really, but I also printed out the
value of "type" before the line, and got <type 'type'as it should

Thanks for any help.

As there is already __init__, why need a __new__? What can __new__ give us while __init__ can't? In what situations we should use __new__? And in what situations we must use __new__? Can __new__ take the place of __init__? Thanks.

Hi, In continuation of the thread I made "perhaps a stack problem? Long calculations - strange error?", I think I now got a "stable" error, meaning that the error always seem to come here now (tried: visual studio 2005 + linux/macintosh gcc)... That's a pretty good thing. I think the error still appears using both gcc and visual studio 2005. Everything is standard C (ANSI C ?? I don't know the difference) - but since so many functions...

Sorry to put here too many questions about __init__ __new__ stuff but I always found a new problem when using them. I have searched for simple __new__ docs on how to do the basic things but find none. After trying the solutions people gently posted here (thanks) I run into new trouble when I go with further development. Here is the new situation.

Hi, the behaviour I always observed when creating instances by calling the class A is that '__init__' is always only called when the object returned by A.__new__ is an instance of A. This can be observed by the following code: class A(object): def __new__(cls, *args, **kwds): print "A.__new__", args, kwds
