Upgraded to Python 2.5 on the Linux system, rebuild M2Crypto,
and it stil fails, but the last line of the error message changed to:
ValueError: invalid literal for long() with base 10: '_40f91a08_p_SSL_CTX'
Others have encountered this problem, from a Google search.
Is "long" supposed to operate on C objects?
