python-2.4 to python 2.5 upgrade hell

It's been a while since the last post.

Not much been happening except that I'm missing out on life due to work commitments which seriously sucks.

In any case, been battling with the python upgrade on my gentoo box at home.

I've been having undefined symbol issues with pygtk and pygobject all through last week and I just solved my issue like 10 min ago and thus I can go to sleep already.

Main issue is the borking when I was compiling a python app which needed gtk support. Only thing, it, it also needed "threads" support which, for some reason, is not default turned on in Python2.5 but is on python2.4!

Hence, I spent the last week pulling out hairs trying all different permutations of WHY did it USED to work and doesn't now.

it ended up as a simple USE flag which was not checked during the ebuild checks.

Why.. Oh.. Why...
