Yes, that is what I found out after your comment yesterday on this bug

The versions.cfg template files are were pinning z3c.recipe.eggbasket
to 0.4.0...  That's the double edged sword of pinning: you don't get
new bugs, but you also don't get new fixes...  Anyway, I fixed this in
grokproject trunk:

* Pinned all package versions in the generated versions.cfg to the
  latest released ones.  Especially pinned z3c.recipe.eggbasket to
  the most recent one, 0.4.1.

I see some test failures now, I'll take a quick look at that.  It does
seem that everytime I run bin/test in grokproject the tarball gets
downloaded and all eggs get installed in a temp directory so this
takes a long time. :-(

I added a note in the CHANGES.txt of z3c.recipe.eggbasket too:

  Note: when releasing a new version of this package, also update the
  versions.cfg templates in grokproject as z3c.recipe.eggbasket is
  pinned there.
