[CentOS] Python resource module returns just zeros

I'm using a call to the resource module's getrusage method.  On openSUSE
this works, on CentOS [python26-2.6.5-3.el5] it 'works' but just returns
zeros for the memory utilization values.


openSUSE: returns 5512
CentOS:   returns 0

Anyone know what condition causes this?  Or is there a better /
more-reliable way to check memory utilization of the current process [from python]?
