basemap problem

I just installed the latest EPD 6.0.2 Python 2.6-based distribution in WinXP. The mpl version is 0.99.1.1 and I installed basemap using the basemap-0.99.4.win32-py2.6.exe binary installer. I'm getting this traceback. Any ideas?

Hang on - I just noticed EPD says it contains basemap already, so maybe installing over the top of it did something - I'll trying uninstalling and doing a repair of EPD.

OK, that worked. Sorry for the noise. I forgot basemap gets put under site-packages/mpl_toolkits. When I installed a second copy using the basemap binary installer, it went under site-packages and caused some sort of conflict.
