Python and MySQL 4.1

Hello.  I just upgrade to MySQL 4.1 from 4.0, and I'm having trouble
retrieving text from the DB in the proper format using the MySQLdb
module in Python.  All text fields that are retrieved are in this

array('c', 'Whatever is in the field')

The only data that's not displayed in that format are enum values, and
when I was still in v4.0 only 'Whatever is in the field' is

Are there any quick fixes?  I've completed my Python application
already, so I don't really want to go in and mess with the source code
if I don't need to.

Thanks in advance.
