Anyhow, my problem is that print() appears to be sometimes causing the same line to be printed out repeatedly. I'm loathe to draw the conclusion that the underlying libraries are misbehaving, but I've taken the following precautions:
The amount of data it's spitting out is extensive
The code is asserting that the exact string hasn't been printed before
The thread and object id's are included in what's printed
There's a call to randrange() included at the end, just to make sure
And yet, I'm still getting identical lines of output.
My questions are:
What the fuck?
Is there some config setup to make this stop?
If not, is there a workaround?
My next step is to try making everything dump objects to be printed on a queue and have a single thread to all the printing, in the hopes that that will get the duplicates to go away, or at least be next to each other instead of obnoxiously interleaved. But first I'm taking a break for lunch, I've already wasted a day on this crap.
