I think I installed the plugin properly, but when I try to login, I get:

Hmm, changing from mod_python to FastCGI seems to have fixed the problem for me. I'm closing this ticket.

I'm getting this same problem under mod_python with trac 0.10.4, so i'm re-opening this ticket. This is a real problem, since trac needs to be able to run under mod python. the FastCGI workaround isn't an option for some folks who might very well want

I can corroborate this error with mod_python 3.3.1, trac 0.10.4. FastCGI is non-free software so that's not an option.

According to the source code browser, was last changed 2006-12-21. Do we have an abandoned project here?
