Package: python-pywbem
Version: 0.8.0~dev650-1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,

I'm trying to use a nagios script called check_esxi_hardware.py which uses python-pywbem.
When trying to run the script against our server an exception is thrown:

python2 /usr/local/lib/nagios/plugins/check_esxi_hardware.py -H ... -U ... -P ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/lib/nagios/plugins/check_esxi_hardware.py", line 619, in <module>

    except ( Err.SSLError, SSL.SSLError, SSL.SSLTimeoutError
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'SSLTimeoutError'

'module' here refers to m2crypto. IMHO this look like an incompatiblity between the versions of
python-m2crypto and python-pywbem.
