Dear Jim

Of course you are right, pyfits 1.3 is very old. But I have ubuntu
10.04 with pyfits from the repository.
It should be a newer version, I really don't know what happened.

If I do:
     import pyfits
     print pyfits.__version__

I got the 1.3 version

Does anyone has a similar problem?

Thanks
Fabricio
