Bug with "Database Connection" in Python using 10.1

I just installed 10.1 on my PC.   Now when I run my Python script it no longer recognizes any connection coded like "Database Connection\Connection to ...".    These connections work in ArcMap and ArcCatalog.   When I create a Model using these connections, the model works.   When I export the Model to a Python script the model it fails.    If I replace the "Database Connections\..." path prefix with something like "C:\Users\SomeUser\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\Desktop10.1\ArcCatalog\..." it works.   In short Python is not resolving "Database Connections" to the actual location of the connections (ie. "C:\Users\SomeUser\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\Desktop10.1\ArcCatalog").   I have SP1 installed on the ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop.    My C: drive has both a "Python26" and a "Python27" directory.   Maybe its getting confused where to run Python?    Also it looks like ArcCatalog/ArcMap run as 32 bit where as Python runs as 64-bit.   Is there something I can do to configure the 64-bit side to find "Database Connections".   

Please help!   Thanks!
