I was able to spot the cause of the trouble: a piece of old code that

FYI, to my surprise, Python really quit. No more CPU time, no message,
nothing. I can't recall having seen this before.
If you post the relevant "old code" it's very likely someone could point
out exactly why it failed, and how it wasn't *Python* that "quit", but
merely something in your code that was blocking. (In other words,
Python probably did exactly what you told it to do.)

In general, Python does not "quit". It's very robust. When you get a
failure like that, always suspect your own code structure.
