Probably. RelStorage declares a dependency on ZODB, and likely an
incompatible version has been installed in your python's site-packages

Remove  the RelStorage, ZODB and any zope-related eggs from your
python site-packages directory to remove.

Better to not use easy_install for your Zope2 install, as Zope2
doesn't (yet) declare that it already *has* ZODB included. Just
install RelStorage in your instance home lib/python directory. Note
that RelStorage requires you to patch your Zope installation!
