Considering that I haven't seen it in 10 years of Python use, that is  
probably a good description.

How did you upgrade? By compiling a framework version of 2.4 and  
replacing the Apple-provided 2.3?  That should be fine for MMTK, but  
you risk running into trouble elsewhere, as there are Mac applications  
out there that use Python, and assume that 10.3 has Python 2.3, which  
Apple guarantees.

Anyway, perhaps the simplest thing to try is to delete every trace of  
MMTK and then reinstall it using "python2.4 setup.py..." to be 100%
