IIRC you hade Location "/knesset" in your httpd conf, and it should go 
there, otherwise it won't catch on, as obvious from your result. Django 
uses django.root regardeless of <Location> (at least from reading the 
code of mod_python handler).

It's not just their example, it's working on my servers as well. Can you 
post your entire apache config ?
