[mod_python] Apache service won't start after module import

I'm quite new to Python and integrating it into Apache, and wanted to
utilize TRAC on our Windows 2003 webserver. However, things are not as easy
as I thought: If I want to include mod_python as an Apache module, the
service won't start anymore (but loads forever till Windows kills it after
the timeout). Still, I got the very same configuration running on my WinXP

I have already done some checking to find the root of the problem, so I can
tell that the problem has nothing to do with any Python directives - just
only the module import brings Apache down. Another interesting thing is that
when I run Apache not as a service, but from the command line, the import
works and I can even get it to run the test handler(!). However, if I try
and run TRAC in this configuration, the request times out and I get a blank
Finally, the logs reveal nothing: there is no error message to be seen.
Also, the Windows event log offers no information.
Currently I use the CGI handler, but it's awfully slow. Running TRAC in its
own webserver works, but I want to configure security settings in one place.

Hoping someone here can help me,
