There are known problems, but without the error messages from the Apache
error log file, we would be guessing.

Does the problem occur in PSP code independent of use of MySQLDB? Are 
mixing use of mod_python.psp and mod_python.publisher and thus are using
"from mod_python import psp" or "import mod_python.psp" explicitly?

You might try latest beta of mod_python 3.2 as some issues related to
module importing when using mod_python.publisher and mod_python.psp
together are addressed.
