[Buildbot-devel] Buildbot 0.8: exceptions.ImportError: cannot import name collections

The machine in question previously had 0.7.12 installed on it and was
upgraded to 0.8.0.

The buildbot process was not stopped after the upgrade and thus was holding
onto a buildbot/util.pyc file.

This seems to be the source of the issue.

Thanks to all for their input,
