Arbitrary errors with c++, python, and simple mapi

I´m programming a wxWidgets application using MSVC++ 6.0 on WinXp, SP1,
reportlab 1.19 and simple mapi.
I programmend python modules, which call the reportlab modules. My python
modules are called from C++ using the API.
Everything works fine until I did the first call to a function in the
mapi32.dll. The loading of the dll doesn´t matter, but any call to the mapi,
i.E. MAPLogon, leads to arbitrary errors calling the Py-API.
pDict = PyModule_GetDict(pModule);
pFunc = PyDict_GetItemString(pDict, func);
Doing this before a mapi call and calling PyDict_Keys(pDict) returns a list of
91 keys including the function func. Doing it after a mapi call
PyDict_Keys(pDict) returns a list of only 15 Keys without the function func.
Doing the calls before and after a mapi call, a callable pFunc is returned in
both cases, but the pFunc retrieved after the mapi call doesn´t work anymore.
pValue = PyObject_CallObject(pFunc, pArgs);
returns 0x0 and no pdf file is generated.
Seems that the MS dlls are peeking and poking around in the python
Has anybody seen this happen, too? How can I debug it. All print statements
from within the python modules seem to go to /dev/null, as do
if (pErr = PyErr_Occurred())
Any help would be appreciated.
