Bug#597164: mock: fails with ImportError: No module named root_cache

Package: mock
Version: 1.0.8-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Trying to run mock as root yields the following error message:

debian:~# mock -r epel-5-i386 --init
INFO: mock.py version 1.0.8 starting...
State Changed: init plugins
ERROR: No module named root_cache
Traceback (most recent call last):

    fp, pathname, description = imp.find_module(modname, [self.pluginDir])
ImportError: No module named root_cache

As mock does not seem to work without 'root_cache', which appears to be 
something shipped by mock, I consider mock to be broken in it's current
