Thanks, Gregor -- your fix solves the compile errors I was getting. I guess you have this working on some 64-bit platform? I've encountered new compile errors further along in the build process ...

> Linking CXX shared module _SubnetTree.so

... which I suspect may also be a 64-bit platform problem. Do you have any guidance to offer on this new error? The Python-2.6.2 that I am using is the only version of python I have available on this particular build target.

Thanks again,

Perfect. I'll aim to merge that in soon. Don, in the meantime, you can
just merge this into devel for testing.
