[Grok-dev] AssertionError on install on WinXP

I'm attempting to install Grok on my Windows XP laptop.  I downloaded
the Zope3.3 executable from Zope.org, installed it, and followed up by
installing easy_install and grokproject per the instructions on
grok.zope.org.  All seemed to install with no problems.  However, when
I do a

C:\Python24\Scripts>  grokproject --with-zope3="C:\zope3\" Sample

The program will run for a bit and then spit out an AssertionError:

I'm at a loss as to how to correct this problem.  Could anyone point
me in the right direction on getting Grok working properly?  I'm
really eager to try out Grok after reading through the tutorial!
