internally SCons uses


to print out the Python version in your example output above. So it looks as if a different Python is picked up when running SCons. 
Do you have several versions installed, especially a 2.6.6? It might also be a mix of 32bit vs 64bit...I'm not sure. For now it just 
doesn't look like an SCons bug to me.

Best regards,
