What are the contents of sys.version_info? On my copy of 2.2.2:

$ python
Python 2.2.2 (#1, Jan 12 2003, 12:07:20) 
[GCC 3.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sys
>>> sys.version_info
(2, 2, 2, 'final', 0)

What does your copy show in version_info?
