   I'm trying to move from GRC 0.69 to 0.70.  0.69 works fine,
but 0.70 gives me a bus error when I start it:

[eds-mac:gnu_radio/grc_0.70/src] edwardc% ./
Removing empty category "Custom"...
Bus error
[eds-mac:gnu_radio/grc_0.70/src] edwardc%

Running under gdb gives:

Program received signal EXC_BAD_ACCESS, Could not access memory.
Reason: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at address: 0x00000000
0x00244479 in PyString_FromString (str=0x0) at
106     Objects/stringobject.c: No such file or directory.
         in Objects/stringobject.c

and the first few lines of a backtrace gives:

I'm running on Mac OSX 10.4 with
python    2.4.4
py-xml    0.8.4
py-gtk2   2.10.4
py-numpy  1.0.3
gnu radio 3.1.1

Any ideas?
