Are you sure that the normal user and root work with the same python 
version (BTW this should be Python 2.3.4 for Zope 2.7)? Try the following:
which python
which python

The output should be the same. If there are differences, call setup.py 
install with the full python path you get for the user's python version, 
  e.g. /usr/local/bin/python2.3 setup.py install

Oh, and there is a new version (1.2.0) for MySQL-Python available:
