More information:

A regression has been identified in the python2.6 update of DLA-25-1, which may cause python applications to abort if they were running during the upgrade but they had not already imported the os module, and do so after the upgrade. This update fixes this upgrade scenario.

For Debian 6 Squeeze, these issues have been fixed in python2.6 version 2.6.6-8+deb6u2
