PL/Python import _sre module error

Hi All,

Does anyone else have a problem with importing the re package 
I am using:

Redhat 9.0
PostgreSQL 7.3.3

When I create a function:

import re
o = args[0]
b = re.match(r"^t.*",o)
if b:
   return "fits the bill"
return "failed the test"

PostgreSQL fails, and returns the error message:

exceptions.ImportError: No module named _sre

If I go into python, this is not a problem, so I suppose it is somehow
due to the restricted execution environment and/or PostgreSQL. But
that's as far as I get.

Any suggestions on how to pinpoint the problem? Surely someone else is
using re (sre), since the other modules (pcre, pre) don't handle
