We've been hunting down issues with Grok on Windows (long story short:
we did have it working at some point but we broke it again) recently.

This is a new Windows related error to us, so that's interesting.

I've just released a new version of z3c.recipe.eggbasket which may or
may not help.

I'm also not sure whether you don't need to throw out your existing
collection of eggs to make it pick up this new version. It's configured
in .buildout/default.cfg, which grokproject should have created for you,
but where I do not know - in Linux it's in your home directory. Windows
users please help write some documentation about all this. :)

Thanks for this report! Please do keep them coming, we will not rest
until Grok installs properly on Windows again.
