thanks, i did it now.  it is kjGraph.  the following command also raises
access violation:

    python -c "import kjbuckets; g=kjbuckets.kjGraph(); print g"

when importing peak.model.features, failing is line 470 in
method_exporter.py: 'vt += d' in MethodExporter.__init__()

i can get .keys() and .values() from a kjGraph object, but i do not know
what else i could try with it and what c function to look at.

that's right.  to make it more funny, i could say that we have used msvc
toolkit 2003 to build python23 extensions for about half a year now, and
there were no errors.  today i have built the same PEAK sources with the
same compiler for python23, and all PEAK tests pass there.
