Hi there,

When we were using mr.developer at the Grok sprint last week, we ran 
into the following issue when testing the zopetoolkit and/or the 

When you use bin/develop co to check out a package, it will check it 
out. In some cases it will however not "unpin" the version, even though 
mr.developer to my understanding is supposed to do. This means that the 
equivalent of this doesn't happen:

zope.foo =

Instead therefore, it won't use the checked out version at all but run 
tests against the pinned version in the ztk.cfg file (for instance):

zope.foo = 1.2.3

This can be very misleading to say the least. The workaround is to put a 
manual unpin in the buildout.cfg.

Could someone:

* reproduce this with the ZTK or Groktk?

* create a minimal test case

* figure out how to report a bug report to the mr.developer developers

* and report the bug?
