Hi Tim,

I realize it’s probably a little late now, but if you still have a Mountain
Lion machine, you can try running python -c 'from pprint import pprint;
import sys; pprint(sys.path)' on both machines with your Python to see if
the default paths have changed. Debugging PYTHONPATH issues are
*usually*straightforward - either modules are on it or not. Let me
know if you need
some help, since I will be updating to Mavericks soon too.
Good luck on your apps!
