    This problem only occurrs when there is no *Python* shell
    buffer. Hitting C-c ! makes the problem disappear.

    Thanks. I started working on this last night and think I
    have a fix.

    Worrying that fixing this problem in the obvious way might
    lead to
    other problems elsewhere leads me to wonder if there's a
    unit test
    package for Emacs Lisp that's similar to Python's unittest
    module.

    I have no idea, but I'm quite sure you will get usefull
    answers on the (x)emacs mailing lists.

    In py-execute-region on line 1759 (v. 4.75) change
    "py-which-shell" to "shell".
