Python/up2date error on RHEL4

I'm trying to run up2date and keep getting:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 27, in ?
from up2date_client import repoDirector
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/repoDirector.py", line 5, in ?

When trying to launch the rhn-applet I get:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/rhn-applet-gui", line 30, in ?
import rhn_applet
File "/usr/share/rhn/rhn_applet/rhn_applet.py", line 31, in ?
from StringIO import StringIO
ValueError: bad marshal data

What exactly is "bad marshal data" How can I resolve this?

Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 2)
Thanks in advance
