Profiling Embedded Code

I've got some Python code that is embedded into a C application, and I'd
like to profile it. Unfortunatly I can't get the standard profile module to
My C code imports a module, and then at the appropriate time calls the
UpdateGameData function. When the module is imported I'd like to do a 'test'
run of the function, with the profiler on to perform a simple check on it.
(I know this is not a particually good way to profile the code, but I'd like
to get it working and then move on...)
The module is given (slightly trimmed) here...
p = profile.Profile()
With this code I get the following exception...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./python/core.py", line 28, in ?
File "c:/programming/python/lib/profile.py", line 403, in run
return self.runctx(cmd, dict, dict)
File "c:/programming/python/lib/profile.py", line 409, in runctx
exec cmd in globals, locals
File "<string>", line 1, in ?
NameError: name 'UpdateGameData' is not defined
Now this seems very silly to me as 'UpdateGameData' obviously is defined. I
had a look in the code for profile and it seems to mess around with
__main__, but I'm not sure that it's pointing at the right place.
Any suggestions for how to get this to work would be much appreciated,
