It's working fine for me, although I have python-2.4 on this system.
Do you see any strange output from

python -v -c 'import _dbus_bindings'

For me, it shows it loads /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/_dbus_bindings.so

I believe only dbus, python and dbus-glib should make a difference
when trying to load dbus-python.

Any strange output from

ldd /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/_dbus_bindings.so

Mine shows just linking to libdbus-1 and libc.
