Python launcher not working on Mac after Leopard upgrade?

I just installed Leopard on my Mac. I already was using Python 2.5.
I can run a Python script from a terminal window by typing "python
script.py" as one would expect ... but not using the Python launcher
either directly or indirectly (by double clicking on a Python icon).
Has anyone else observed this and, more importantly, found a fix for
this problem?

My guess is the environmental settings have changed somehow. You may
be able to edit the shortcut's properties somehow to make it work, but
I don't have a Mac, so I can't say for sure. Reinstalling the main
Python distro would probably fix the issue.

I had tried both ... with no success. Just a minor pain, but still...
