I've installed Python 2.5.4 from and AppEngine is using this. I've done nothing else, and made no modifications to bloggart. I couldn't see any other instructions so I assumed this was all that was required.

Have I just missed out some important step or is this an actual issue?

I can confirm this. The odd thing is that accessing /admin/ right after starting the devserver doesn't trigger this error -- This used to happen a lot to me on my own engine also.

Importing fix_path and calling fix_path.fix_sys_path() before import markdown on solves this problem.

I can confirm this issue. I can also confirm Caio's workaround. I pushed that fix to my own clone:
