Post the code which uses the result of calling os.listdir("/tmp").

If you are using mod_python.publisher, what do get if a publisher
function is written as:

  def function():
    return os.listdir("/tmp")

Does the list of files correctly display on the browser?

If you are trying to display the result yourself in some way in a HTML
page, are you passing each file name through cgi.escape() to ensure that
no special characters in the names are stuffing up the HTML when parsed
by the browser?
