Does it still fail if you take out the space before the semicolon?  
Maybe your
web client is being very fussy.

Have you tried to use some means to look at the headers sent back by
mod_python in the response to verify what has actually been sent? There
are extensions to firefox to look at headers returned, but I think  
you can
also use tools like wget/curl to remember headers so you can look at  
as well.
