bad cd or glint broken?

When I tell glint to scan available packages, it gets about 3/4 of the way
through then the progress bar stops. The xterm says

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/python-root/usr/lib/python1.5/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line
752, in
    return apply(self.func, args)
  File "./glint.py", line 62, in available
    availablePackageSet = PackagePathSet(currentPackagePath)
  File "./packageset.py", line 157, in __init__
  File "./packageset.py", line 148, in setPath
  File "./packageset.py", line 40, in addPackage
    self.packages[package.getLabel()] = package
  File "./package.py", line 138, in getLabel
    return (self.getName() + ":" + self.getVersion() + ":" +
  File "./package.py", line 116, in getName
    return self.h[rpm.RPMTAG_NAME]
AttributeError: h

Does this look like a defective CD, or is there some misconfiguration with
glint? This is a stock RH5.1 installation, I have not monkeyed with any
libraries. The CD is from  a book, not RedHat directly; if it were corrupt,
might it manifest itself this way? It mounts fine, of course, and the
installation went smoothly (though I didn't install every package).
