+#
+# The various methods of bufferobject.c (here buffer_subscript()) call
+# get_buf() before calling potentially more Python code (here via
+# PySlice_GetIndicesEx()).  But get_buf() already returned a void*
+# pointer.  This void* pointer can become invalid if the object
+# underlying the buffer is mutated (here a bytearray object).
+#
+# As usual, please keep in mind that the three "here" in the sentence
+# above are only examples.  Each can be changed easily and lead to
+# another crasher.
+#
+# This crashes for me on Linux 32-bits with CPython 2.6 and 2.7
+# with a segmentation fault.
