Just the way Python lambda expressions bind their variable
references. Inner 'i' references the outer scope's 'i' variable and not
its value 'at the time the lambda got defined'.

Try giving the lambda a default parameter (they get calculated and
have their value stored at the time the lambda is defined) like this:
funcs = [ lambda x, i=i: x**i for i in range( 5 ) ]
Hope this helps.
