That's 'typeinfo for std::basic_istream<char, std::char_traits<char> >'.

And that's 'std::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>,
std::allocator<char> >::basic_string(char const*, unsigned int,
std::allocator<char> const&)' - i.e. the constructor for std::string
(you can decode these by piping text containing them through 'c++filt').

Usually this sort of error results from mismatching C++ library
versions, so I'd suggest rebuilding xapian-core and then xapian-bindings
from scratch to make sure that's not the problem.

The only other thing I can think of off the top of my head is that
Python is either partly written in C++ (which I don't think is the case)
or is automatically loading another C++ extension and that this is
pulling in a different version of libstdc++ or something like that.
