I see exactly the same problem. My install is with MySQL and Python
both via Fink. Trying both 2.2 and 2.3 Python I get the same problem.

Trying to dig into it a little it looks as though the setup code isn't
populating some of the fields and methods and the error thrown shows
up because self.converter is set to None.

I'm going to try and figure this out but would be interested in any
insight others might have.
