So this is most probably happening because of subtle differences between
PA-RISC and Itanium. Itanium was built to be able to execute almost
everything that PA-RISC can.
However as per the following page below:
you must use "-x allow_incompatible=true" option when you swinstall a
PA-RISC application on compatible Itanium platform. Note 'compatible'.
Have you done that when installing the older python1.5.2 binary on Itanium

I just did a google search to get this far. Have never worked on PA-RISC or
Itanium, only knew superficially about Itanium because I worked for Intel
till recently.
For more details you would have to wait from some
more knowledgeable answers.

take care,
