Yes, I have some thoughts on the subj. But they are equal to zero. =)

Remind me an anectode:
One mathematician was asked: have elephants wings?
His reply was: yes, they have wings, but they (their wings) are equal to 0.

In Russia this book is known only in translation by V. Volkoff
(he is Boris Berestetsky, - a not very famous, but extremely qualified Soviet physicist).
In Russian it's titled as "Volshebnik Izumrudnogo Goroda".
Literally it means: "A Magician (of/from) Emerald Town".

I have no such.
Maybe only a book which my sister gifted me.
It was titled "Wizard of Oz". I was reading it all a Sunday, from sunrise till dawn.

Indeed, let's, all we, start to study Mathematical Logic & Set Theory.

At my last job my boss lashed into me:
"Why do not you earn money doing some projects for students etc?"
(for years, at work, I was solving numerous algorithmic problems,
because in my the very first year there I had done everything for my factory)

Disgusting scumbags those who did it.
In Russian I'd call them "merzoidi".

Your Stack is filled / emptied like this:

1) 1, 2, 3, 4
2) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
3) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
4) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
5) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
6) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
7) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ---<--- and from this state we find the path to "T",

but cell with "5" in it is still in the stack (but should be popped up).

Actually we have to declare "text" as global only once:

def f():
    global t
    t = 567

def g():
    f()
    print t * t

g()

Kert,
in Python 2.5 your script works fine.
Means... what? A bug, I guess.
