Package: pitivi
Version: 0.10.1-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable


I decided to give pitivi a try tonight, and it resulted in:

% pitivi
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/pitivi", line 85, in ?
  File "/usr/bin/pitivi", line 57, in _init_gobject_gtk_gst
    import gtk
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.4/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py", line 48, in ?
    from gtk import _gtk
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/cairo/__init__.py", line 1, in ?
    from _cairo import *
SystemError: dynamic module not initialized properly

(and of course the program stops here).

I have unfortunately no knowledge in python...
