I started to write a small script, copied from the stackless page. Strange enough, it had some problems with types, ending with a "?" (never seen that before in Python). However, I thought I had an issue with 2.6.5, deinstalled it all, downloaded 3.1.1 and installed it. Now the things are getting really worse: This is the trace of a small console:

Python 3 requires print to be a function like:

>>> print("hello")
