Actually come to think of it I coulda sworn that various things
didn't work on "the new machine" until I added a DU directory to
PYTHONPATH in the registry. Checked just now - I delete that
directory from PYTHONPATH using regedit and the script says
it can't find whatever.py; I put the directory back and it 
runs just fine. (Python 1.5.2; like you said, maybe the rules
are different.)

I imagine it's true nonetheless that the 2.x install is not 
going to change the 1.5 registry entries, eh? (Not if I
back them up first, anyway...)
