Hi Garrick,

My python script depends on another framework that is implemented in python.
The error is originating from the framework code note my script and I cannot
change the framework.

Also, it works on other machines. So my guess is that I have no choice I
need to install the 'py25-hashlib' on my current box.
Any idea?
