Hmm... try adding
print "EEK! Got unexpected filename:", repr(the_file_is)
You could also raise an exception, instead of just printing a message.
I'll wager that the_file_is winds up with some sort of unexpected
value, and causes your variable to never be assigned a value,. because
none of the conditions trigger.
