Bug Description

Doing a partial upgrade to oneiric (because bzr-svn is not yet uploaded for the latest bzr), trying to use bzr-builddeb gives errors:

$ bzr bd -S
bzr: WARNING: bzrlib version doesn't match the bzr program.
This may indicate an installation problem.
bzrlib from ['/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/bzrlib'] is version (2, 4, 0, 'beta', 4)
Building using working tree
bzr: ERROR: The API for "<module 'bzrlib' from '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/bzrlib/__init__.pyc'>" is not compatible with "(2, 3, 0)". It supports versions "(2, 4, 0)" to "(2, 4, 0)".

Packages installed:
$ dpkg -l '*bzr*'|grep ^ii
ii bzr-builddeb 2.7.4ubuntu1 bzr plugin for Debian package management
ii bzr-dbus 0.1~bzr49-2 D-Bus announcements plugin for Bazaar
ii bzr-email 0.0.1~bzr49-2 Notification email plugin for Bazaar
ii bzr-git 0.6.1+bzr1279-1 Bazaar plugin providing Git integration
ii bzr-gtk 0.100.0+bzr731-1 provides graphical interfaces to Bazaar (bzr) version control
ii bzr-rebase 0.6.1+bzr227-1 transitional dummy package for bzr-rewrite
ii bzr-rewrite 0.6.2-4 History rewriting plugin for Bazaar
ii bzr-svn 1.0.4+bzr3475-1 Bazaar plugin providing Subversion integration
ii bzrtools 2.3.1-1 Collection of tools for bzr
ii python-bzrlib 2.4.0~beta4-4ubuntu2 distributed version control system - python library

If I remove bzr-svn, the problem goes away. If I upgrade bzr (which removes bzr-svn anyway), the problem also goes away.

The package dependencies should prevent the system from getting into a state where there are incompatible bits installed together like this.
