This is a bit problematic setup. I would expect that the opposite
(building with version X, and running with version Y >= X) will work,
but using an older runtime version is tricky because your code may end
using symbols which are not present in the older version.

Without more information, it's hard to say whether this was a problem
in your case. It could be that python 2.7.3 simply has a bug, and the
crash would happen even if you were using the same version of python
for building (our bots are at 2.7.6, and I am not aware of anyone
testing/using/shipping lldb with an older version of python)
