Failing connection with MySQLdb on Mac OS X

P: n/a
Getting weird error, and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.
My system appears to satisfy all MySQLdb prerequisities in terms of
python, mysql, etc. Also, phpMyAdmin works fine with mysql, leading me
to believe that my installation of MySQLdb is at fault. Any ideas?

TIA
For file test1.py (for appropriate values of user and passwd, and
database location exists)

import MySQLdb
db = MySQLdb.Connect ( host="localhost", user="yyy", passwd="xxx",
db="location" )

Error is :

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "test1.py", line 3, in ?
db="location" )

"/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/
