Hi all,

Doing a simple "bzr status" command I get this:

    Unable to load plugin 'svn' from '/home/user/.bazaar/plugins'

The ~/.bzr-log is below. The bzr-svn plugin works correctly on
a Feist machine (Python 2.5) but fails on a Dapper machine 
(Python 2.4). 

The Bzr version is idential on both machines; version 0.16.0dev0 
pulled this morning from

Any help appreciated.
