[mod_python] Permissions issue

Dear all,
  I have a problem I can't seem to get my head around, I'm hoping this is common enough for someone to have a standard reply! I have a Python-Pygresql-Postgresql-Apache-Mod_python setup and have  aproblem connecting to the postgresql database. I believe this is a mod_python issue specifically because the same code works fine as pure Python code accessing Postgresql through Pygresql.
  There is a shopping basket on a pure html page which sends form data to a mod_python coded page and the following error message is received with apache's debug feature on. This identical code worked on a windows system, and the same connection code works fine as a pure Python module on the said machine. In httpd.conf, the user is Apache and the group is Apache.
  I've tried every experiment I can think of. Can anyone help?
