Hi,

When I try to upgrade python-gtk, I get the following error:

Setting up python-gtk (0.6.8-8) ...
option -q not recognized
usage: compileall [-l] [-f] [-d destdir] [directory ...]
-l: don't recurse down

Funny enough. Can you please check if you have the compileall.py from
the Debian package python-base? Otherwise that would explain your
problem as the -q option was added by the Debian maintainer of 
python.
