I tried that and the modules are loaded from the right place. I checked
creation date of the shared object "MMTK_minimization.so" and it was
created at the
time when MMTK 2.2b6 was installed and used for the first time.

I will install the newer versions of python and Numeric together with
MMTK on my home computer which also runs RedHat 7.1 and try that out and
I try to install a newer version of python locally on my office machine
and see what that does. That'll take some time (I am also going to
Germany for a week now) but I'll let you know how it turns out.

Thanks a lot for your help,
