Thanks Jacek, this did the job. py-python-command was set to 
"/usr/bin/env python"
and Mandrake was not happy about that, for some reason. 
I solved setting py-python-command to "/usr/bin/python". Now it works.
Still, it is not as handy as in Scheme/Lisp where I can execute the block
by just giving C-x C-e after the last parens (ah, how bad Python lack of 
parens ;)

BTW, if someone needs tips for programming Scheme with emacs my suggestion
is to try quack.el by Neil van Dyke (google is your friend).
