That's very odd.   I'm pretty sure that both print and formatting as %s
both call the __str__ method of the class.  In that case, the following
pieces of code should print the same output for all objects var

print var


x = '%s' % var; print x

At least now you have a general Python question that you can post to
comp.lang.python.  Perhaps my claim is incorrect.
