My problem is that I have to install a production release. But I 
upgraded the Machine to Python 1.5, not 1.5.1, and got into trouble
after following the instructions. (Which claimed Py1.5 would do).
Of course I can upgrade to Py 1.5.1, but if it's not necessary, this
is a good compatibility check.

Funny thing - in order to keep an installed system, I have to use
a non-released beta of some other system. Somehow this is upside down,
isn't it?

cheers - pirx
