No, this error comes out of twisted, so if you have no other twisted
install, the PYTHONPATH thing works as it should, otherwise you'd get
import errors.  Are you shure that it works without exporting the path?
that'd be very strange, you can check with  env if  the dir  is on your
path..   regarding sshsimpleclient, i don't know, for me the example
works, but in the code it's lastPublicKey, not llastPublicKey.. maybe
one 'l' too much there? try some other examples, twisted works, the
simpleclient-problem is independent from that.
