I saw this (and reported this issue in SF's tracker) at some time around
2.2/2.3 (just cann't recall). I don't know what causes this problem
exactly, but in my case the installation succeeded if I removed prevoius
python's library directory (/usr/lib/python2.x or
/usr/local/lib/python2.x). The module that stopped installation was
exactly the same.
