Hmm, off the top of my head I could think of Listen: http://www.listen-project.org/
There is also the game Galcon, though that is not exactly commonly used.
Another Amarok-clone for gnome music player in Python is Exaile.
If I find more I'll post them.

If you have ever used gentoo the emerge app is written in python.

I imagine that Ubuntu's "Text editor" (ie, Gedit) is an often used piece of software for many Ubuntu users. Although the editor itself is not written in Python, the majority of its Plugins (ie, adds additional features to the program, such as the spelling checker, and "statistics" report generator) are written in Python.
