true, the else part executes as well. The verion of pythin i use 2.5

You're doing something wrong. Without seeing actual code, it's
impossible to say what.

Your else statement is incorrectly indented. The interpreter treats it
as part of the for-loop construct inside the if statement rather than as
part of the if statement itself. See the recent thread about for-else
constructs for more details.

If your problem is not obvious yet, make sure you aren't mixing spaces
and tabs.

Works as expected here, the 'else' part is not executed if the 'if' part is
true.

Python 2.5.1 (r251:54869, Apr 18 2007, 22:08:04)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5367)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>def tr():
.... print "tr func"
.... return "Sander"
....
>>def fa():
.... print "fa func"
.... return "Harry"
....
>>s = "yes" if tr() == "Sander" else fa()
tr func
>>s
'yes'
>>s = "yes" if tr() == "San" else fa()
tr func
fa func
>>s
'Harry'
>>>
Can you show your code?

My crystal ball tells me the problem is on line 42 !-)
And if you expect any useful help, please post the minimal working code
reproducing the problem (chances are you'll find the problem by yourself
doing so...).
