Which version of mod_python were you using? Current official release  
of Trac will
not work with mod_python 3.3 out of Subversion trunk because it  
relied on accessing
internals of util.FieldStorage which have changed in 3.3. You would  
need to be using
Trac from their Subversion repository which uses a WSGI style adapter  
instead and
doesn't fiddle with util.FieldStorage.
