Comment (by cdavid):

 Yes, it works after the ALL patch; actually, because of the patch, I
 changed my site.cfg [default] to ALL, which did not work. I think your fix
 does fix the issue, but not how you wanted :)

 I don't think it is bizarre, I think I now know what was going on: the
 [default] section in site.cfg behaviour was not removed in python 2.6.
 What you cannot do is to manually add a default section in site.cfg, but
 you can still have a default section is site.cfg. I think that before your
 patch, the section member in SytemInfo was simply not used: it was already
 handled by ConfigParser automatically.
