Yes, this is certainly the same bug.

Could you send the output of
python -c "import misc; print misc.__file__"
as Adam Collar asked in the other bug

could you try something to help pinpoint the bug ?

edit /usr/bin/meld, at line 32, you should see something like:

sys.path += [ "/usr/lib/meld" ]

try to replace the line with:

sys.path[0:0] = [ "/usr/lib/meld" ]

just replace "+=" with "[0:0] ="
and launch meld again, the same way as when it was failing, and report.

We're in the process of making a new release, so this one should be fixed before.
