It gets weirder.  Graham Roberts spotted that he was getting this error
message  on his Mac OS X machine (I mainly use Ubuntu).  So I gave it a
go and also get the message:

|> bzr push
Using saved location: bzr
Unable to load plugin 'dbus' from
No new revisions to push.

Why is this totally weird?  Well /usr/lib/python2.5 doesn't exist on the
Macports port, which is what Graham and I are using.  On my Mac OS X
machine I appear to have a number versions of Python -- I am guessing
that the ones in macports are actually symbolic links not copies..


The point is that /usr/lib/python2.5 doesn't appear anywhere.  So the
path is hardwired in the code somewhere rather than being generated by
the path of the Python in use.

I am beginning to wonder if the message itself is totally spurious?  It
is still a bug, it shouldn't appear at all but maybe it is reporting the
wrong thing?
