[mod_python] mysqldb calls cause segfault

Hi all,

I am trying to write a small python-mysql application with mod_python 
but got stuck right at the beginning. The following code snippet:

     import MySQLdb
     db = MySQLdb.connect(user="xxx",passwd="xxx",db="xxx")
     return db

causes a Segmentation fault.

apache log:

[Sun Oct  9 11:09:52 2005] [notice] child pid 6736 exit signal 
Segmentation fault (11)

(in fact, any mysql db operation causes the same)

I am using python-mysqldb version 1.2.1c3-2 and libapache-mod-python 
version 2.7.10-4 (both installed from Debian packages, thinking that 
they were stable releases). Apache version is 1.3.33. Am I doing 
something wrong?

Thank you for your help,
