[Python-Dev] Buildbot failure puzzle

At least the following 3.4 buildbots have failed today with an error I 
do not understand: AMD64 FreeBSD, PPC64, x86Ubuntu, x86 WinServer 2003.
Except for the Windows BB, it was the only failure and hence the only 
reason to not be green.

ERROR: test_xmlcharnamereplace (test.test_codeccallbacks.CodecCallbackTest)
Traceback (most recent call last):
line 112, in test_xmlcharnamereplace
     self.assertEqual(sin.encode("ascii", "test.xmlcharnamereplace"), sout)
line 102, in xmlcharnamereplace
     l.append("&%s;" % html.entities.codepoint2name[ord(c)])
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'entities'

test_codeccallbacks.py: lines from 2008-05-17
line 002: import html.entities
line 102:    l.append("&%s;" % html.entities.codepoint2name[ord(c)])

I checked with an editor and these are the only two appearances of 
'html' (so it was not rebound to anything else) and the spellings in the 
file are the same. Indeed, the same code has worked on at least some of 
the same machines.
