Pmw.initalise() probs

I just downloaded and installed the pmw tarball on my NT box. Everything
looked pretty straight forward so I'm a bit mystified by the error I'm
getting. The "import" seems to be finding the library but I can't call
the "initialise" function which seems to be a common call in all the
examples I've looked at.

The version of Pmw is 0.8.4.

I had the same problem using the console shell and I have added the path
to the directory I installed Pmw into to the PYTHONPATH registry entry.

Maybe it was the long weekend... Am I missing something here?
