Now I also tried SOAPpy but it throws the same exception in XMLSchema.py 
(which belongs to wstools - the same code base for SOAPpy and ZSI).
This is what the web service provider states on its home page:

"If you choose to also try a different SOAP client, please be sure it 
supports document-style messaging (as we do not use RPC-style 
messaging). Also, the SOAP API only supports the UTF-8 encoding scheme."

Sorry for the dumb question, but what is "document-style messaging"? 
This web service provider tells me that the supported platforms are 
Visual Studio .NET and Apache Axis. I have FreeBSD 4.8 which I must use, 
but AFAIK Java does not run on it. :-(  I would like to use Python.
