that's weird because it works on several of my machines and also in a
clean pbuilder chroot; have you tried reinstalling it? remove +

$ python -c 'import mysql.connector as a ; print a.__file__'
$ readlink -f /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/mysql/connector/__init__.py

that's not the problem: python-support creates the symlinks tree at
install time (via trigger).

No, that's not going to happen anytime soon.
