[Pythonmac-SIG] How to import libraries on Mac OS X?

Hello Pythonistas,

I've written a Python library with some functions I want to use with 
other Python scripts.
The library is located at (Mac OS X):
(My scripts are located in this directory, too.)

I use the statement:  "from name_of_library import special_function" to 
import this special_function.

When I launch the Apache-Server and call a script which wants to import 
this library, I get a "malformed header" error.

But importing standard libraries, such as "from string import *", no 
error occurs.

Maybe some environment variables must be set. But which? Any ideas?

Thank you,
