Fontlab and Python versions

Which Python version is most stable to use with Fontlab Studio 5.0.4/Win?

I use Python 2.4.3 and experience a lot of random crashes and stops when running scripts that does a lot of glyph level operations for complete families. It is really random, I log each operation and FLS crashes on different tasks each time and sometimes it process the whole family without complaining using the very same script and font data. It gets a little bit more stable if I add some sleeps in between operations or let different scripts execute the same actions one at a time, or process one single font at a time. The memory and process levels are quite normal. I had the same problems with 5.0.3.
