that is irrelevant. installing python apps places parts of them in system python library folders by default. having multiple versions may lead to one version using modules from an incompatible version, hence to errors.

well, if that one works. remove all of the other ones and fix the cron issue instead? 

I'd remove them all and start over with 1.2.2.  It has fewer errors than 0.8.12 which is a few years old.

You can download a versioned tarball of 1.2.2 from here.  The one you got was for developers.
