4) You have some other installation of PIL in your sys.path that it's 
finding?  PIL works just fine in Panther with the version of Python 
included with 10.3.  Did you tweak your PYTHONPATH for some reason?  Do 
you have old 2.2 modules lying around?  You won't get a version 
mismatch for anything built for Python 2.3.  Modules that were built 
for MacPython 2.3 on Jaguar work just fine on the Panther installation 
of Python 2.3, barring other issues.

This one is definitely your fault, I don't know what you did, but this 
isn't reproducible and it's basically impossible to compile a version 
mismatched Python module with a stock Panther+Xcode system (i.e. one 
with no other .
