I had a similar problem with python 2.4.1.

When I imported some module, I got a SyntaxError like you.

But if I run the module directly, and not importing it, it works and
dos not trigger any SyntaxError.

As a workaround, I put a comment ( just a # can do ) at the end of the
offending line, and I could then import the module without any problem.

It is certainly a bug, and I think it is perhaps this one ( bug 1211639

or this one ( bug 1200686 ):
