I don't see how that could possibly happen. poller.poll() (which is  
what l was assigned to) returns a standard list instance, so there  
should be no long/int conversion going on at all in executing this  
'for' statement. However, since it apparently can happen, I don't see  
how it could possibly be twisted's fault. It looks more like a Python  
bug. What OS/version are you running on, and what's the exact python
