FreeBSD 4.4 is quite old, and I would strongly recommend
upgrading, especially if the machine is connected to a
network.  The latest stable release of FreeBSD is 4.10.
It also comes with the latest version of Python (2.3.4),
both as a ready-made binary package and as a "port" for
easy compilation.

I suggest you upgrade that machine.  I'm sure the problem
won't persist.
