    This indicates some kind of refcounting problem with interned strings.
    (string_dealloc was called for a mortal interned string, but removal of
    that string from the dict of interned strings failed for some reason)

    If you can find a case where this happens without using third-party
    modules like db2, you should file it as a bug on
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/python

    I have never heard of this error before, so it must be uncommon/hard to
    trigger or due to a module that few in the community use.

    Interned strings were made mortal in Python 2.3, so this could be a 2.2
    vs 2.3 incompatibility in some third-party module.
