Package: pitivi
Version: 0.10.3-1.1
Severity: minor

During a partial upgrade (installing squeeze's GIMP on lenny, which pulls
in python 2.6, among other things), I discovered that lenny's pitivi does
not coexist happily with python-2.6:

   Setting up python (2.6.5-5) ...
   running python rtupdate hooks for python2.6...
   Compiling /usr/lib/pitivi/python/pitivi/objectfactory.py ...
   SyntaxError: ('invalid syntax', ('/usr/lib/pitivi/python/pitivi/objectfactory.py', 297, 14, '            as = self.audio_info_stream\n'))
   pycentral: pycentral updatedefault: error byte-compiling files (47)
   pycentral updatedefault: error byte-compiling files (47)
   error running python rtupdate hook pycentral
   [snip the sound of many, many packages failing to be configured due to python configuration failing]

Upgrading pitivi to squeeze's version does provide relief.
