[Chimera-users] chimera on OS X 10.5

When I run Chimera on OS X 10.5 "Leopard", I get a ton of the  
following errors in /var/log/system.log:

The process has forked and you cannot use this CoreFoundation  
functionality safely. You MUST exec().
Break on  
() to debug.

I first reported on this on November 2, 2007, but with the latest  
daily build this still happens. I removed all extensions, but that  
doesn't seem to make a difference. My own extension becomes painfully  
slow, because Chimera is constantly writing the above error message.

I never get the error above with the version of python that comes with  
Leopard or with the version of python2.5 in MacPorts. Would it be  
possible to build Chimera's version of Python similar to these other  
versions of Python? Or does the problem lie elsewhere?
