Re: Script randomly exits for seemingly no reason with strange traceback

It's a rare occurrence, but sometimes my script will terminate and I get

That's it. And the line number is always the last line of the file
(which in my case is a blank line).

Is it reproducible? That is, can you demonstrate a script which will
*always* show this failure?

I have not seen this on Linux (where
my script can run for days or weeks on a remote server), but only on
Windows where I do most of my testing (and it typically only runs for
minutes at a time). There may be bugs in my program, but I don't see how
Python should ever print a traceback like this.

Which version of Python, which version of Windows?

If you upgrade Python, does the problem go away?

If you perturb your script (add a few blank lines at the end, or a
comment), does it go away?
