I am running Win2000 and ActiveState Python 2.2.1. I did think of the 
possibility of something wrong with my installation, so I downloaded the 
program again, and ran the repair function in the installing. However, it 
didn't change anything. I haven't done anything else to Python. It all comes 
exactly as standard out of the "package".
