I should have spotted this sooner.  The errors are due to a bug in the  
test runner that causes spurious failures when a buildout directly  
contains packages without an intermediate "src" directory and when it  
has it's own eggs directory rather than using a shared eggs directory.

I've added a src directory and the tests pass under Python 2.4 and  
2.5.  It looks like they'll pass under 2.6 once the deprecation errors  
are dealt with.

I'll raise the priority of fixing the test runner.
