Would you please remove the .egg file from your /usr/lib/pythonX.Y/ 
site-packages for Nevow and try the Tahoe test again to see if it  
starts exhibiting the old weird recursion problem?  If that doesn't  
trigger the problem, then will you please remove, one by one, all of  
the .egg's from your site-packages which are specified in the Tahoe  
_auto_deps.py file?

I'm glad to hear this!  But I promise to help you put it back  
afterwards.  Also you can always run Tahoe from in-place, as in:

cd $TAHOE_SOURCE_DIR && python ./setup.py build && ./bin/tahoe --version

Which should keep working even when the dependencies have been  
uninstalled from your system-wide site-packages.  (Unless we succeed  
at uncovering the weird recursion problem again.  :-))
