I get the same results with both Python 2 and Python 3 on GNU+Linux:

$ python
Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Oct  9 2010, 13:53:14)

$ python3
Python 3.1.3rc1 (r313rc1:86453, Nov 14 2010, 05:49:40)

Troubleshooting questions:

Is there a rogue module in your project tree that, by being named the
same as one of the standard library modules, shadows that module?

Does the same problem behaviour occur if you import some other module in
place of ‘optparse’?

Can you reduce the content of your ‘logging.config’ and still see the
same problem behaviour (i.e. do you really have the minimum complete
example yet)? What is the minimal config file that still results in the
same behaviour for you?
