Odd error by mod_python

P: n/a
I have mod_python 2.7.10 running with python 2.3.4 and am getting an odd
error. The error is happening on the production machine, and not on my
development machine.

I am using the publisher handler and am calling the index function with this
from mod_python import apache
import random

def index(req):
return "hello world"
I am getting the following error:
line 130, in handler
module = apache.import_module(module_name, _req, [path])

File "/usr/local/python/lib/python2.3/site-packages/mod_python/",
line 335, in import_module
module = imp.load_module(mname, f, p, d)

File "/var/www/html/", line 2, in ?
import random

File "/usr/local/python/lib/python2.3/", line 54, in ?
LOG4 = _log(4.0)

ValueError: (84, 'Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character')

Does anybody know what may cause this? I have searched the error in google
and have little success. I am thinking it is some sort of encoding error
or something, but I don't know why this is only happening in production.

Note that this error is only occuring when I import the random module, and
if I comment that out everything works fine. However I need the random
module for some of my other code.

Also if I run the following from the command line it works fine:
import random
print "hello world"

I don't know if it matters but I am running:
apache 1.3.27
redhat 7.2
