Does this still happen? I know I ran into this problem with people last 
  year, but we're pinning the eggs down now, so installing 'grokproject' 
should be unrelated to what's in the site-packages. You'd think that 
it'd get the right versions of the eggs, no matter where they are.

If this is still a problem, could you create a launchpad issue on this? 
You could simulate this situation with a virtual-env or by using a 
custom installation of python.
