Because buildout, like easy_install, will pick the newest available
version for a distribution. Fortunately, buildout has a prefer-stable
option so that you can tell it to prefer stable over alpha/beta/dev
releases. Also, in any serious situtation you'd want to pin your
versions, e.g. using the KGS  or a manual list.
