Can you upgrade Python to the next revision? I have 2.5.2 installed
here (in OS X) and ctypes.__version__ is '1.0.3'.

If that doesn't fix it, check around for a stray _ctypes.so (or
something similarly named) that doesn't match your system ctypes
library. There should only be one _ctypes.so in your Python path.
