Which version of Python are you running, and is it via the port?  Python 
includes a pretty thorough test-suite; it might be useful to run that and see 
whether you can get it to crash.

Also, see whether you can get a coredump and take a look at the backtrace to see 
where the error is happening, although random failures in long-running processes 
could be a sign of hardware problems rather than a software issue.
