What it comes down to is what happens when you are embedding the
latest 'release26-maint' branch and you have the release version

This to me is the crux of the matter.  This is, I assume, a standard
Python problem.  If you get it when embedding a Stackless modification
of an installed release version, you should get it when embedding a
standard revision which differs from the installed release version.
If that is not the case, we need to look at why and change Stackless
to fit the standard behaviour.
