import Error SWIG extension

Hi again,

I succeeded compiling my extension (done with SWIG) but trying to 
import it I have the following error:

import mvelib
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in ?
    import mvelib
SystemError: _PyImport_FixupExtension: module mvelib not loaded

I tried compiling the elemlist example from Alex Martelli (it's
made without SWIG) and it works.

I copied both of the extensions in my python home dir, so the
problem has to be in the code?
I had to rename the init_mvelib function to initmvelib that
disutils have been able to compile it.
Is it possible that the error is in the init function?

Anybody knows the cause of the error?
