I'm going to answer my own question on this. A nice way to fix this is
to create a .pth file in /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages, with the
import sys; sys.path.insert(0, '/Library/Python/2.5/site-packages')
On my machine for some reason i see the site-packages directory in
there twice (even before this .pth file was added), so there's a part
of me that wants to go with:
import sys; sys.path = [s for s in sys.path if s != '/Library/Python/
2.5/site-packages']; sys.path.insert(0, '/Library/Python/2.5/site-
but that only seems to get rid of one of them. It doesn't seem to
matter anyways, so I guess the first version is good enough.
