I fixed that recently in CVS. Don't know who, but someone must
have broken this. Normally, changes should be committed only
after running the test suite...

What traceback to sdo you get? renderPM makes use of _renderPM,
an optional library, but I don't know excatly what it is able
to do *without* finding _renderPM. Robin's the guru here...
