This is a problem with scipy distutils picking up the wrong system IO 
library.  I don't know why things changed in the move to Python 2.4,  
but for some reason, Python is being compiled against one system IO 
library, and scipy is being compiled against another.

I don't know how to fix it, right way.  Everything worked fine with 
Python 2.3.
