[Zope] japanese encoding

Perhaps I should also mention that I can log into the server, open up a 
python console, and type:

 >>> import japanese
 >>> text = 'blahblah'
 >>> text = unicode(text, 'utf-8')
 >>> text = text.encode('japanese.iso-2022-jp')

with no problems.

'japanese' is installed in /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/

I removed my recent /home/USERNAME/lib/python2.4 'japanese' install and 
now 'import japanese', 'print japanese' within Zope reveals that Zope is 
using the same /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/japanese as the python 

However I still get an encoding error in Zope Python scripts or External 
Methods with the above code... code that works fine in the Python console.

Is there some sort of security within Zope that's stopping me from 
accessing the encoding?
