pylint #38558 Curses import triggers maximum recusion depth [rejected]

Running pylint on a python script including the curses package results in:
RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded while calling a Python object

and fails to produce other meaningful output (nothing else is needed to repro, just "import curses"). This is happening with Python version 2.6.4 and Pylint 0.18.0. -Damian
