  I am trying to run buildbot on a solaris 10 platform with python2.5. when i start buildbot I get a version mismatch for ctypes...

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/buildbot", line 4, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/buildbot/scripts/runner.py", line 926, in run

    from ctypes import WinError

    raise Exception, ("Version number mismatch", __version__, _ctypes_version)
Exception: ('Version number mismatch', '1.0.2', '1.0.1')

The default ctypes with python 2.5 is 1.0.1 

i don't this has anything specific to do with buildbot as I get the same error when i try to import ctypes at the interpreter....

Just wanted to see if anyone has come across this too...
