hi all-

i sent this to the pymaemo ppl (one address bounced) but thought i'd

i'm having weird errors with loading images on pymaemo through pygame.
it's completely nondeterministic -- i have run this many times without

so is it something with strange things with flash memory? is there a
way to prevent this? i have no idea why this error occurs - sometimes
and sometimes not.

thanks! christine
