That's very strange, especially since when you say "Python 2.2" I
think you really mean Python 2.2.2.  Not sure which micro release
Python 2.1 is.  While it /shouldn't/ matter, Python 2.2.2 and Python
2.1.3 are recommended.

FTR, I run MM2.1cvs off of Python 2.1.3 on python.org (some mysterious
Linux distro) and Python 2.2.2 (RH7.3) on my personal domains.  I
haven't seen any problems, but that doesn't mean there aren't Python
issues on your particular platforms.
