This is identical to the problem Attila brought up today.  For convenience, I'll repeat what I told him rather than pointing you to the archives.

Almost certainly you have some 1.5.0b1 bits still hanging around confusing the 1.4.3/1.5.0b2 code.

I suspect that if you get a fresh version of your branch again you'll be fine.

Alternatively, try cleaning out the buildout stuff (this usually works for me: ``rm -rf .installed.cfg bin parts``) and then rerun bootstrap and bin/buildout.
