import random error

I am just starting to learn Python and was writing a simple script on
my machine (Mac OS X 10.3.4), but I can't seem to import the random

#!/usr/bin/env python

import random

Results in:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 3, in ?
    import random
  File "/sw/lib/python2.3/", line 42, in ?
    from math import log as _log, exp as _exp, pi as _pi, e as _e
ImportError: cannot import name log

I have such a feeling that this is either a) because I don't know what
I'm doing or b) the python install is somehow strange. What is strange
is that in interactive mode, import random works fine.

Thanks in advance,
