Zim wiki seems to crash with the recent update to python 2.7.13.  There
is a work around to launch Zim:

> zim --standalone

A bug report has been filed upstream here:


I attached the error message to this email.  Reproduced in a fresh
virtual machine of Slackware x86 and x86_64 14.2.  Can anyone else
reproduce this?  Any suggestions are welcome.
