When I try to use this in a Plone buildout, I cannot start my Zope instance anymore. Works fine when I revert to 0.6.16.
This is with zc.buildout 1.4.3 or 1.4.4, Plone 3.3.5 (+python2.4) or Plone 188.8.131.52 (with python2.6).
The buildout (created with either the plone3_buildout or plone4_buildout templates from ZopeSkel, or a client buildout that has worked fine for the past year) finished successfully. Starting the zope instance on the foreground fails with an ImportError; for example this one, but I have seen others:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Users/mauritsvanrees/zopes/Zope-2.10.11-final-py2.4/lib/python/OFS/Application.py", line 709, in import_product product=import(pname, global_dict, global_dict, silly) File "/Users/mauritsvanrees/shared-eggs/Products.ATContentTypes-1.3.4-py2.4.egg/Products/ATContentTypes/init.py", line 64, in ? import Products.ATContentTypes.content File "/Users/mauritsvanrees/shared-eggs/Products.ATContentTypes-1.3.4-py2.4.egg/Products/ATContentTypes/content/init.py", line 26, in ? import Products.ATContentTypes.content.link File "/Users/mauritsvanrees/shared-eggs/Products.ATContentTypes-1.3.4-py2.4.egg/Products/ATContentTypes/content/link.py", line 39, in ? from Products.ATContentTypes.content.base import registerATCT File "/Users/mauritsvanrees/shared-eggs/Products.ATContentTypes-1.3.4-py2.4.egg/Products/ATContentTypes/content/base.py", line 63, in ? from Products.CMFPlone.PloneFolder import ReplaceableWrapper File "/Users/mauritsvanrees/shared-eggs/Plone-3.3.4-py2.4.egg/Products/CMFPlone/init.py", line 215, in ? from browser import ploneview File "/Users/mauritsvanrees/shared-eggs/Plone-3.3.4-py2.4.egg/Products/CMFPlone/browser/ploneview.py", line 12, in ? from Products.CMFPlone import utils ImportError: cannot import name utils
When I go in with a pdb in this utils.py everything seems fine but then the import error just happens a bit further on, failing to import plone.app.layout. On Plone 4 an import of Shared.DC.ZRDB.Search fails. Again, with distribute 0.6.16 it works fine.
This is on Mac OS X. Possibly I have strange ways of installing python, but it has worked fine so far. Can anyone else reproduce this?
I had this same error (on import of Shared.DC.ZRDB.Search) with 0.6.17 and Plone 4.1rc2. Reverting to 0.6.16 fixed that problem (although I had upgraded to 0.6.17 in an effort to fix a seemingly unrelated issue).
This is on Fedora 8.
