Did you set things up as described in the mod_python how-to?


You may be missing the call to StartDebug() which is required in mod_python.
I'm forgetting the details but it has something to do with the way in which
mod_python sets up the Python environment for each invocation -- I think the
tracer doesn't get set again for each invocation and we can't "reach up" the
stack into mod_python internals to make it happen any other way.

If that doesn't help, please let me know.
