I may well have, but that wouldn't surprise me when doing an upgrade in
The real problem, it seems, is there was a spurious python26.dll in
c:\Python26, which shadowed the one in c:\Windows. That file may have
been unique to my installation (I don't recall duplicating it - no
reason to do so). But if other people have it subsequent to a 2.6.2
install, they will probably have the same difficulty I had.
