I am able to use pytagsfs, but not pytags

Thanks for the report.

Looks like the Python signal module contents are different than I'd expect them to be (it appears to define signals that are not supported by the underlying system). I would like to fix this, but I will probably do so when migrating from sclapp to sclapp2 (a work in progress). Unfortunately, this will probably not happen for a few months as time is currently limited.

I'll attach a patch that disables sclapp's signal handling for pytags. You can use this work around until a proper fix is ready.
