  Old legacy Python errors under the new kernel

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I am using some very old installation of Zope server with its own
  archaic Python. Under new kernel (3.13.0-59-generic
  #98~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 24 21:05:34 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64
  x86_64 GNU/Linux) any call of os.system in this Python fails with
  error code 139 (SIGSEV), under previous kernels (until 3.13.0-58) it
  worked OK:

  $ /opt/zope/bin/python
  Python 2.1.3 (#1, Sep 19 2002, 13:15:46)
  [GCC egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)] on linux2
  Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
  >>> import os
  >>> os.system('pwd')

  Obviously I am not sure whether the source of the problem is kernel or
  not, all I know then after rebooting with older kernel my application
  works all right, when rebooting with 3.13.0-59 it crashes on those
  failed os.system calls.

  I am using Ubuntu 12.04, 64-bit.
