This is another problem and one I would appreciate if you could fix :-)

I mentioned it to David in a private message and there was at least one
instance where Linus was involved and I promised to fix this but haven't
find the time to do so.

The problem is that one needs to research how to make the python binding
to be rebuilt when one of the files that are linked into it changes.

Please take a look at tools/perf/util/setup.py and you'll see:

perf = Extension('perf',
sources = ['util/python.c', 'util/ctype.c', 'util/evlist.c',
'util/evsel.c', 'util/cpumap.c', 'util/thread_map.c',
'util/util.c', 'util/xyarray.c', 'util/cgroup.c',
'util/debugfs.c'],
include_dirs = ['util/include'],
extra_compile_args = cflags,
)

Probably is something simple in the Makefiles.

So please try again after doing:

cd tools/perf
rm -rf python/perf.so
make

And you should get the same problem. Also check
/proc/sys/kernel/perf_event_paranoid as this script does syswide sampling.

I'll try to fix this problem now that I took the time to think about it
8-)
