This morning, I noticed my Mercurial install isn't working either - failing with this error message:

$ hg pull

(check your install and PYTHONPATH)

That happens even though I was still able to "import mercurial" in my Python environment. I uninstalled and reinstalled the Mercurial (using Homebrew) and it failed to reinstall with the same error, suggesting strongly that it was the Python environment that was corrupted. I then uninstalled and reinstalled the Homebrew Python 2.7, and the problem was solved. I think this points to another manifestation of something deleting files that were symlinked by directories in the virtualenv.
