Indeed! Thanks a lot,
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sitecustomize.py was created by the
package abrt-addon-python (at least this is the fedora name) and so it
was activated by python itself completely independently from abrt
(which was not running).
Now I removed all packages called abrt-* and the problem is gone.
