I needed to merge some code over to the archer-tromey-python branch
today and wanted a clean compile before I did so. I checked in these
fixes to the above warning, and one other. Please check the latter case,
I'm not sure if setting the buffer to NULL will lead to correct results
in a failure condition.

I think these warnings happen on this (my) system as the version of
Python is different. For reference:

[pmuldoon@localhost archer]$ rpm -q python
