Yes - you are right!  It did update python 2.6.  I had installed python 2.5  
and I did allow the update for 2.6.  I believed it would not do any harm.  It 
did say something about the update too.  But I can't recall what it was.  
Hmmm.  I'll be little more careful about 2.6 in the future.  

I'll keep you guys informed on this issue.  Sometime tonight I'll re-install 
and see what happens.  

Thanks all.
