I recently had the same error, not sure what caused it, but I worked 
around it (dirty I know) by setting the value  to 128 (IIRC in banana.py 
in the twisted source). After that I was able to progress past that to 
further work on setting up my tests.

As my testing had priority over finding the root cause of this bug I did 
not investigate further.

Kind regards,
