Sorry about the delay.
You're right of course, I missed this syntax error when I backported the
changes from trunk to the v0.14.x branch for 0.14.11 (earlier versions
do not have this bug).
That's now fixed:

I've pushed updated 0.14.13 packages for the distros that use python 2.5
or older, like CentOS 5.
