These errors might be due to a python mismatch...The cached pages
contain python code.

I pull the data pages from a mac to a linux box and found that I
needed something like:

/bin/rm -r /var/mywiki/data/pages/*/cache/*

In order to make sure that I am not pulling incompatible python byte
code from the mac to the linux box
