To workaround this issue, create a symlink in the module's dir:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/xcb/xcb.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/xcb/xcb.so

There are also bad softlinks installed in the
/usr/lib/pyshared/python2.6/xcb

xcb.so
xcb.so.0

linked to

../../../python2.6/dist-packages/xcb/xcb.so.0.0.0

instead of

/usr/lib/pyshared/python2.6/xcb/xcb.so.0.0.0
