I'd say there's a chance that the _imaging module has linked to a shared 
library and the web server doesn't have the appropriate lib dir in its 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH. That'd cause an ImportError.

Unfortunately, PIL is swallowing the exact error - try removing the try/except 
around the "import _imaging" and see what the real error is.
