Default python-libxml2: Segfaults when used with Python 2.5

Package: python-libxml2
Version: 2.6.31.dfsg-2ubuntu1
Severity: important

Using the XSLT library from Python 2.5 on an amd64 machine, on a fresh
install of Ubuntu 8.04, I get random segfaults ('random' in the sense
that sometimes they contain a glibc warning for freeing up a pointer
pointing to garbage, and sometimes there's just a simple segfault, but
not 'random' in the sense that it ALWAYS crashes).

Using the same python-libxml2 library from Python 2.4 works like a charm.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to create a minimal example yet that
crashes with Python 2.5 but works with 2.4.
