Albert, we're of the opinion that you have the pyXML version of expat on the
path before the now standard xml library package. When I run this in a
Python-2.3 environment not containing pyXML I get no error. A coleague tells me
that pyXML is supposed to be equivalent, but perhaps you have an older version
or maybe in this area it clashes.
