Is your Etch install doing this? It was with me, really annoying. However, I found a solution (not a great one, but it works).
I got around the problem by forcing removal of python-central,
installing python2.5, then reinstalling python-central.
This seemed to work for me, although the remove did uninstall gnome (although easy to put back after). Thanks to Cameron (http://http://lists.debian.org/debian-python/2006/11/msg00006.html.
Hope this helps!
