Works fine here:

This doesn't look rigbt.  It's missing several routines from the 2.2.1
inspect.py.  Run "python -v" to see where you're getting this file from.

C:\Python22>python -v

It's more likely that you're picking up some other version of inspect.py
from earlier (than C:\Python22\lib\) on your search path.  This is
especially likely because you're not running Python from a normal location
(D:\my-py-pkgs\generic-v2.0 is something you made up on your own <wink>).

Same here -- that doesn't account for it.
