Python error on Mac

When trying to do some things on my Mac (starting Lyx, compiling Latex
via TextMate) I get this error:

python: execv:
/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/Resources/Python.app/Contents/MacOS/Python:
No such file or directory

I (and people on Lyx and TextMate lists) are at a complete loss as to
why this is happening. I didn't (at least intentionally) fiddle with
Python setup.

Thanks!

The default operating system supplied version of Python on recent
versions of MacOS X is 2.3.5. Unless you have specifically installed
2.5, it will not exist. So, if those applications have it hardwired to
use Python 2.5 they will not work.
