THANK YOU! That fixed it, I simply put 

import _strptime

in my *.wsgi script. It feels like a kludgy solution, but it works.

I should also mention that I had a similar problem with the "threading" module that I fixed in the same way. This problem occurred inside of sqlite3 because evidently threadlocking has gone standard as of Py 3.3.x

This is problem that has unduly vexed me. When you start learning Python they don't tell you about these sharp edges. Someone needs to explain.
