If I could get the behaviour that you get, I wouldn't care if it installed
it...

Strange.  I get the warning on 2.2.3 and 2.3b2, except in 2.3b2 IDLE, which
successfully imports fcntl (odd).  (long cut'n'pastes below).

Do you have the PYTHONCASEOK envar set?  (This doesn't seem to make any
difference to me, but from the explanation I didn't think it would).

I presume this means something is screwy with my Python setup?  (or yours,
but mine seems the more likely :).  Any suggestions about what I might be
able to change to get the import error that you do?
