Sorry. I hate when I hit 'reply' and it doesn't do what I mean ;-P

At this point, I have now built a brand new Python 2.6.5 from source, ran
its tests, installed it, did easy_install nose, and had the very same exact
issue. So I downloaded the nose source tarball and ran its tests, and they
all passed, so I did setup.py install, ran it again, and got the exact same
behavior. This is really frustrating :(
