i may be misunderstanding something, but i have checked the signature 
(printfunc) of tp_print member of PyTypeObject, and it seems to be 
correct except that kjbuckets declare return type as long while it is 
int in python headers.  MS says that msvc toolkit 2003 includes the same 
compiler and linker that ship with visual studio .net 2003.  as far as i 
know, these are the same tools (see for example 
http://blogs.msdn.com/arich/archive/2004/07/09/178503.aspx) that was 
used to build python distribution (python says it was built with visual 
studio 7.1).  so i am out of ideas.

best wishes,
