A fresh install of python-ldap does not reside in this directory like 
the ones used in the traceback:
Remove that completely.

After a python setup.py install the python-ldap modules reside in 
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages. And in case of an error this module 
path is shown in traceback.

There is some module mix on your system.

Ciao, Michael.
