Thank you for your help, I was able to fix this by downloading a patch  
from SuSE that basically renames the relevant get_type etc functions  
to those that will work with python2.6. Downgrading to 2.4 broke a few  
other things so I'll leave it as is and plan for the upgrade to 2.1.13.

Thanks again,
