Comment (by dustin):

 How can Python not support the 'ascii' encoding??  If I recall from
 another ticket, you had missing language packs of some sort?  Is that
 behind this error?

 Are you, by chance, using a frozen version of Buildbot?  The links I can
 find googling for "unknown encoding: ascii" all point to free or py2exe,
 and the answers are all to add 'encodings.ascii' or 'encodings.mbcs' to
 the frozen executable..
