You may find the following a useful overview of how class & instance attributes 
work:
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-list/2004-November/251782.html

(Keep in mind that I'm only considering 'normal' attributes in that message - it 
covers the behaviour in most cases, but not quite all. When things stop behaving 
as you expect based on this description, the relevant word is almost certainly 
"descriptors")

Cheers,
Nick.
