Apache was installed with Red Hat, so I can imagine that there are numerous
built-in problems in that department. There always are with the different

I found the cause of the problem - I'm obtaining the name of a module to import
from an XML document, and it is this value which gets passed to
imp.find_module. Unfortunately, imp.find_module doesn't want to use Unicode
strings, and there's even a check in the source code which ensures that only
the Python string type can be used for module names in that function.
I have fixes for my own code, thus avoiding the need for changes in WebKit, but
I may also raise this with the Python people either as a documentation issue or
as a functionality issue. If only I had used repr when printing the values out,
I might have come to a conclusion more quickly.
