Quick thought.  Make sure that the python executable that got
hardcoded into your cgi wrappers is the same one you get when you run
command line scripts.  Conjecture: if not, and one was built with the
crypt module but the other wasn't, then you could be encrypting your
site password with crypt but matching with md5.
