Thanks, but, yeah, I am aware of that. (I did my research before 
unmasking it.  It's driven me nuts that a stable python release has been 
waiting 10+ months to get into my "cutting edge" distro.)  There weren't 
any bugs against the packages I use, though I have found that plugins 
for gedit 2.16 don't like python, but this has been fixed in 2.18.  One 
of the reasons I originally chose pynetcdf was its support for numpy, 
not Numeric, so that's not the issue here.
