Quite possible as I just confirmed the issue on a fresh checkout.

Python -V
Python 2.1.3

This is on a debian system.  

Hmm. Other versions of python are easy to upgrade so:

Python 2.3b2 works
Python 2.2.3 works
Python 2.1.3 fails
Python 1.5   fails

Previously when we had this conversation we tried for a minimum python
of 1.5 and the old config tool manages that.  We may need to bump the
python requirement but we this needs investigation to see why the earlier
versions of python have problems.
