when I run offlineimap, a python script for receive email.

get a error message:

$: offlineimap
Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: /usr/lib64/python2.7/lib-dynload/ undefined symbol:

Only if i run this script with sudo, it worked fine.

$ sudo offlineimap

Where to change this behavior, make this python package can work with
normal user account.
