Please note that one of the lines is the directory that was found in the
"os.walk" loop and the other is the one in sys.path -- I just had them
printed out on adjacent lines to point out the difference in case.
Anyway, the thing was fixed when I put C:\Python25 into the DOS $PATH
environment variable. Still strange though.
