Here is a debug output (joined to this mail), I hope it will help you ! I  
have commented it a little bit.
BTW, the content of the error message is :
Private key is not available for this certificate :
/O=Access Grid/OU=agdev-ca.mcs.anl.gov/OU=<snip>/CN=<snip>
You will have to reimport or otherwise obtain a new copy.

(What did I do ? I have copied an existing /home/user/.AccessGrid folder,  
of an user with a valid certificate, into the /home/user/.AccessGrid of my  
iso, before burning it. Then after burning, I have launched VenueClient.py

The trouble is that anonymous certificates prevent often from connecting  
to some Venue, like the Asian Pacific one for example. So it's exactly  

Thanks all for your help
