Python debugging quirks

I think I figured out one contribution to my confusion.

When printing out a backtrace, it uses the text from the installed version 
but it's actually running the local code.

[murray at hgm ntpclients]$ ./ntpmon ntp-wifi
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./ntpmon", line 164, in <module>
    variables, peer.associd))
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ntp/", line 273, in 
    sys.stderr.write("DNS lookup ends.\n")
NameError: global name 'logfp' is not defined

I had modified that line.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
