I have installed Gary Bishop's readline library and Thomas
Heller's cypes; I have Python 2.4 ActiveState distribution.
When I try to import readline I get the following error:

C:\Programmi>python
ActivePython 2.4 Build 243 (ActiveState Corp.) based on
Python 2.4 (#60, Nov 30 2004, 09:34:21) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)] on
win32

ValueError: bad key

Any hints on what is causing this and the cure?
TIA,
