Set in my shell? No.

And this last attempt where I got the 10.3 != 10.5 error was with a freshly
compiled 2.5.4 source release from python.org.  Plain configure/make/make
install (with a --prefix= option).  Plain as plain can be.

If you google it, there are quite a lot of reports on this.

Well, I've got the tests running with python2.4 at least.  Hm. I *could* do
another build WITH such an environment variable set...
