A possible complication is that I also have python 2.3.? on that 
machine, which I am reluctant to remove incase it disturbs my linux 
distribution (Fedora Core 2).
Its also possible that I have done something silly to an environment 
variable.  To check this I will try installing my package either as root 
or another user.
