[mod_python] attribute snacks

Allow me to expand a bit on this as my first message was a

On gentoo, in current up to date (as of this writing) state.
Running Apache 2.0.50, mod_python 3.1.3, and python 2.3.3, I have the
following issue.

On the commandline I get this by doing a dir() on a class instance
from a custom module.
['__doc__', '__init__', '__module__', 'conn', 'curs', 'dbname', 'host',
'insert', 'select', 'user']

doing this from mod_python however gets me these results.
['__doc__', '__init__', '__module__', 'insert', 'select']

the insert, and select entries, are methods, the conn,curs,dbname,host,
and user entries are attributes, which mod_python seems to eat and then
complain about the lack of. Any help would be greatly appreciated in
this area as I've been scouring docs and mailing list archives trying
to find any other instances of this problem and have thus far come up
with nothing.
