Dear PETSc team,

When trying to install PETSc-2.3.3-p11, I get the following output 
from ./config/

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "./config/", line 298, in <module>
   File "./config/", line 210, in petsc_configure
     import cPickle
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.5/lib-dynload/ undefined 
symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_DecodeRawUnicodeEscape

Is there something wrong with my python installation, or what else did 
I do wrong?

Best Regards,
