Ned: that shouldn't prevent whichdb from figuring out the type of the db file, though, if I understand correctly.

Niklas: that's unexpected, so I suspect something is not right about how you inserted the print. You did say you were a Python newbie...I think perhaps the best thing to do would be to post with your issue to the python mailing list and see if folks there can help you sort out whether there really is a bug in 3.2.3rc2.

As for gdbm support in a source build, it can only be built if you have the right header files available for gdbm on your system when you do the compile.  From what Ned said I suspect you have to do extra work to make that happen, which is again a better question for python-list rather than the bug tracker.
