Hmm, what version of swig are you using?

The SWIG docs include this compatibility note:

  In SWIG-1.3.13 and earlier releases, module names did not
  include the leading underscore. This is because modules were
  normally created as C-only extensions without the extra
  Python support file (instead, creating Python code was
  supported as an optional feature). This has been changed in
  SWIG-1.3.14 and is consistent with other Python extension
  modules. For example, the socket module actually consists of
  two files; socket.py and _socket.so. Many other built-in
  Python modules follow a similar convention.

So maybe you're using an older version of swig which automatically puts in an
underscore and defines an init_core() function.
