Additional info:
Found by trying to execute buildbot master Periodic scheduler on fully updated RHEL 6.4 box. See problem


Update to fc16 package (python-simplejson-2.1.6-1.fc16.x86_64.rpm) solves problem.
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 19:27:45 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 3 Bohuslav "Slavek" Kabrda 2014-02-14 07:47:32 EST
Note: this is fixed by upstream patch http://code.google.com/p/simplejson/source/detail?r=177.
Comment 4 Petr Viktorin 2016-07-14 11:14:14 EDT
Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 6 is entering the Production 2 phase of its lifetime and this bug doesn't meet the criteria for it, i.e. only high severity issues will be fixed. Please see https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/ for further information.

I suggest using "json" (from the standard library in Python 2.6+) instead of simplejson.
