Why are you using 2.1b1, a beta-test release of many
months ago?  Or do you mean 2.1.1, the latest stable
release?  For the latter, I do have an entry
with both a default value (;-separated directories)
and subkeys (named Pythonwin, win32, and win32com in
the case of my machine) each of which has a default
value of ;-separated directories -- just like it used
to be in 2.0, right?
