That looks like the packaging is broken somewhere then -- if bzr-svn is
installed in the 2.5 area but python-subvertpy is not, which is what it
looks like, then that's a bug that has nothing to do with Launchpad.

Where are your bzr-svn and python-subvertpy packages from?

Using the system python would probably be OK, but I think finding/fixing
the real bug would be better.
