_add_TB was the function that I fixed in _rl_accel.c. After fixing stuff in
_renderPM.c and various other scripts I can now run all the tests again
(including all the renderXXX.py tests). Your gist does run, but I have no way to
know if the output is correct. Currently I have an issue with GIF output and
python 3.3. However, I am using different sources for PIL there (pillow 2.3.0)
rather than PIL 1.7 for python 2.7. I will have to see if this is my bug or not.
