This worked with Python 3.1 on 9.10 Karmic Koala. The same error appears on two separate installations of Lucid.

Issue 3770 does not seem to be relevant here.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python3.1/multiprocessing/", line 28, in <module>
from _multiprocessing import SemLock
ImportError: cannot import name SemLock

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:
