Until now I used post-review (RBTools 0.2) from my mac and I can push
diffs without any trouble to a ReviewBoard 1.5.2. Now I started using
a Windows client and get strange errors when trying to push a diff.

RBTools 0.3.2:
I cannot push a diff, I just get the following error message.
"Unable to access the root /api/ URL on the server."

Surfing to the /api/ folder of my server brings up the expected xml-
tree. Everything seems fine.

RBTools 0.2:
Using RBTools 0.2 I get the behavior described in the following post.

Post-Review keeps asking a second time for credentials to the "Web
API". See the typed command:
C:\Users\rstein>post-review --submit-as=rstein --diff-
filename=rbDiff_File --repository-url="https://subversion/dev
" --server=http://reviewboard.lan --username=cmdlineusr --
==> Review Board Login Required
Enter username and password for Review Board at http://reviewboard.fme.lan/
==> HTTP Authentication Required
Enter username and password for "Web API" at reviewboard.fme.lan

After supplying also the credentials for the Web-API, post-review
generates a huge error message and dies in recursion like described

The error message is the following. The part from "line 297 in open"
repeats all the time:
Username: Exception RuntimeError: 'maximum recursion depth exceeded in
__subclasscheck__' in <type 'exceptions.RuntimeError'> ignored

The person in this thread speaks of a solution which is not described.
Christian Hammond also speaks of a mod_wsgi module setting in the
apache configuration. This is not applicable in my case, since I use
fastcgi. The mod_wsgi is not enabled on the server, as I understand

After this I updated my Site to ReviewBoard 1.5.4, which does not
solve any of the described problems. I am confused, as the same
command on my osx machine passes without any problems.
