 Don't meant to hijkack this thread but my issue is slightly related. I.e.
broken Python :( I've built and rebuild Python26 and migrated everything I
can think of that depended on Py25 -> Py26 and stuff still goes boom.
Horrible booms too! Most notably it's gobject-introspection and py-dbus and
so much depends on these that I'm about to throw the switch on this box and
start over again. When it does it claims it can't find the py26 headers
tho.... what gives?
