[chirp_users] more on getting OS X working

Dan and the group,

I'm looking for thoughts on why d-rats works fine, and chirp doesn't  
for my MacBook Pro.

I've tried Susan's path:
export PYTHONPATH=/opt/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages

using the rest of python as-is in MacOS 10.5.6 (although I might have  
more installed in site-packages than she does, it's where my ports  
drats build setup is)

and am still getting the same error I do with either my fink or ports  
full setup (both of which work fine with d-rats). the main window  
opens, I can choose new, or look at the about box, but not open the  
serial port.

I'm wondering if I've got some cache file somewhere that's messing  
things up, it seems to always have a problem with "list index out of  
range"

I was pretty sure that at least once I got it to run many versions  
ago, but I'm not 100% sure on that.  If so it was summer time frame.   
I tried both 1.8 (since Susan had it working on Mac) and the latest  
beta).

Any ideas are appreciated.

here's MacOS's python with the path set to the ports site packages:

here's  fink's python that works just fine for d-rats:
