python -U problem for 2.4.3c1 on Windows 2000 (was Does -U optionreally exist?)

I did observe the problem when using the -U
option on Windows 2000. Seems like some infinite
recursion in cp1250.py -- see below.

I did not try it with earlier versions of Python.

Can this be reproduced on your computer?

Thanks for your time and experience,
pepr

P.S. Thanks, Martin, for the hint.

As for dropping the u prefix on string literals:
Just try the -U option of the interpreter some time,
which makes all string literals Unicode. If you manage
to get the standard library working this way, you
won't need a per-file decision anymore: just start
your program with 'python -U'.
I have failed to find the -U option in Python 2.4.2.

See the 'import site' failure. I do use the sitecustomize.py
(C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\sitecustomize.py). It contains
-------------------------------------
import sys
sys.setdefaultencoding('cp1250')
-------------------------------------

I did remove the sitecustomize.pyc before the command.
When trying the python -U -v 2>xxx.log, I get the
following (shortened):

I can't try right now. However, I can readily
believe that Python easily crashes when invoked
with -U, and I can also believe that it only happens
on some systems.

If you care, please research the cause, and submit a
bug fix. Just submitting the bug report likely won't
react in action (atleast not from me).

Regards,
Martin
