See the posts from Felix Schwarz here a few days ago. It looks like he ran into and debugged the same issue. I haven't had a chance to wade into it. (I can't say I'm looking forward to it.)
I'll try to get up to speed on this this weekend.

I am running into something very odd on an Ubuntu 11.10 system: it looks like namespace packages are entirely broken there. Here is a pdb session to demonstrate:
(Pdb) import repoze (Pdb) repoze <module 'repoze' from '/home/wichert/lib/buildout/eggs/repoze.formapi-0.4.2-py2.7.egg/repoze/__init__.pyc'> (Pdb) repoze.__path__ ['/home/wichert/lib/buildout/eggs/repoze.sphinx.autointerface-0.6.2-py2.7.egg/repoze', '/home/wichert/lib/buildout/eggs/repoze.formapi-0.4.2-py2.7.egg/repoze']
So at this point I can import the repoze namespace packages, which is defined by both repoze.sphinx.autointerface and repoze.formapi. Now I try to import repoze.sphinx.autointerface:
(Pdb) import repoze.sphinx.autointerface *** ImportError: No module named autointerface
That is unexpected since we saw the repoze.sphinx.autointerface egg was found earlier. So lets look at repoze.sphinx:
(Pdb) repoze.sphinx <module 'repoze.sphinx' from '/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/sphinx/__init__.pyc'>
I did not see that coming at all: how can a system sphinx package that is not inside the repoze namespace suddenly appear there? This is especially odd since buildout hooked me up with a sphinx package in the buildout itself:
(Pdb) import sphinx <module 'sphinx' from '/home/wichert/lib/buildout/eggs/Sphinx-1.0.1-py2.7.egg/sphinx/__init__.pyc'>
I am not sure who is responsible for this behaviour or how to debug this. Does anyone have any useful hints?
