FWIW, I'm using Python 2.4 on a Windows XP box.  But it looks like my 
problems were due to using PythonWin.  When I tried the same code at the 
command prompt python, it worked just fine.

Anyone know why PythonWin would do this?  I originally ran into this 
problem using simliar code in a module that I used with the Ellogon 
( framework.  Maybe if I can solve the problem for 
PythonWin, I can translate that into a solution for Ellogon too...
