Yeah, I became aware of this issue recently:


Setting the PYTHONPATH environment variable will work around it for 
the time being.  I'm not a Python guy and my time has been pretty 
limited just recently so I haven't figured out a better solution.

BTW, the MacPorts backend WILL get an appropriate PYTHONPATH when run 
via launchd and the (overnight) metadatalookup is working for me. 
Are you trying to initiate metadatalookup from the recording rules
