Doesn't really belong here I believe, but BTW:

C:\mingw\SWIG-1.3.19\Examples\python\import>python -V
Python 2.3b1

C:\mingw\SWIG-1.3.19\Examples\python\import>swig -version
SWIG Version 1.3.19

C:\mingw\SWIG-1.3.19\Examples\python\import>gcc -v

 Should see 'Base::A' ---> I'm Base::A
 Should see 'Base::B' ---> I'm Base::B
 Should see 'Foo::A' ---> I'm Foo::A
 Should see 'Foo::B' ---> I'm Foo::B
 Should see 'Bar::A' ---> I'm Bar::A
 Should see 'Bar::B' ---> I'm Bar::B
 Should see 'Spam::A' ---> I'm Spam::A
 Should see 'Spam::B' ---> I'm Spam::B

Testing some casts

 Should see 'Base::A' ---> I'm Base::A
 Should see 'Base::B' ---> I'm Base::B
 Should see 'Foo::A' --->
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 55, in ?
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'A'

Most unexpected, but that's the only problem I've stumbled across for now
(and it's propably swig's fault.)
