Startup problems with Python 3.1.2 and PythonPath under XP

I fixed the problem by creating a file call MyPath.pth that has only
one line

and placing it in the C:\Python31\Lib\site-packages directory. So as a
practical matter, my problem is solved. That said, I'm still puzzled
by why Python 3.1 acts up when I set the environment variable
PYTHONPATH. It certainly caused no problem with the 2.X series.
