IDLE & MySQLdb import error

I installed python 2.5 and used the win package for installing MySQLdb. (Iam running Windows XP)
Everything works as expected using python directly (Windows command shell) but using IDLE gives the import error below.
Same error with PythonWin as my IDE and everything works using python 2.4-- with IDLE and without, mySQLdb is loaded with out error.
Below is the IDLEscreen capture

Python 2.5 (r25:51908, Sep 19 2006, 09:52:17) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.

IDLE 1.2
>>import MySQLdb
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#1>", line 1, in <module>
import MySQLdb
File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\MySQLdb\__init__.py", line 19, in <module>
import _mysql
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified procedure could not be found.
It seems that when using IDLE the _mysql package cannot be found although the path is the same as non-IDLE
python and help('modules') shows _mysql is an available.

Is this an IDLE or MySQLdb bug or some incorrect settign on my side
