Ok, I tried the following...

from OpenGL.GL import *

Which resulted in this...

0xb7c98156 in glGetError () from /usr/lib/libGL.so.1

I tried the following simple program...

from OpenGL.GLUT import *

This resulted in a Segmentation fault, so I ran the program through gdb.

Can you try *just* calling glGetError()?  If that's the problem, then it would seem that glGetError cannot be called on that machine before you've initialized a context?  (That would be strange, but I'm little surprised by weird restrictions in OpenGL implementations these days).  We can work around that if it's the case.
