It shouldn't need to be installed: the python2.5 package includes the
sqlite3 module and the _sqlite extension module. He's running a more
modern version of Ubuntu than I am, but I don't think that they've
reintroduced the python-sqlite package in any form.

Indeed, which is why I think that there must be a manually installed
Python on his system, especially given that /usr/local/lib/python2.5/
sqlite3/__init__.py is one of the files mentioned in the traceback.
