Hi,

I installed a brand new linux Mandrake and I noticed a strange thing when
using the shebang in a python script.

$ which python
/usr/bin/python

$ python
...
>>>

$ /usr/bin/python
...
>>>

myscript.py:
----------
#!/usr/bin/python
...
----------

$ chmod +x myscript.py

$ ./myscript.py
error : interpreter not found. (!!!)

The shebang works for #!/bin/sh (and others)

Did I miss something ?

Thanks in advance for any hint.
