Where did you get this copy of pywikibot from? Can you run

This bug was fixed quite a long time ago, make sure you're getting the latest version from Gerrit ([[mw:Manual:Pywikibot/Gerrit]]).

I'm seeing this consistently, too, and I checked out cleanly from TOT. I'm running on MacOS 10.9 / 13A603 with Python v2.7.5

I'm seeing this consistently, too, and I checked out cleanly from TOT.

What is TOT?

Top Of Trunk - an SCM term referring to the fact that I didn't build from a branch.

What I *have* done since, however, is switched from the old svn repository to git. The version I'm checking out of GitHub seems to work just fine now, and I'm up and running again :)

Thanks for the help,

SVN was killed months ago, so if you still use (svn) trunk you're running old software. git master is where to check out. :)

Looks like I'm late to the party! :)

Thanks again - working from git now and all is well ...
