And you are absolutely right!  MultiViews prevented mod_python to look 
at the request, and turning MultiViews off solved the problem (I 
should've disabled it long ago... if I wasn't so lazy).  I knew there 
was something wrong in my apache config (I patched the default from 
Ubuntu), I never thought it was a problem with mod_python itself.

Thanks a lot,
