There have not been any changes lately to the PyGTK/Gtk requirements
for PythonCAD. In fact, the "pygtk.require('2.0')" line has been in
the code for quite a long time. I'm guessing there is some issue
with the PyGTK installations on your machine.

I also run Debian and on my machine typing the command above I get
the following results:

$ dpkg --list | grep gtk | grep python
ii  python-gtk2                      2.8.6-8
Python bindings for the GTK+ widget set

I'm using Debian unstable.
