xword won't open puzzles

Asked by lykwydchykyn

Since upgrading to oneiric, xword won't open puzzles. I usually download puzzles from http://www.macnamarasband.com/dlpuz.html. They always worked fine under natty, but I get the following when trying to open one in oneiric:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/games/xword", line 1202, in <lambda>
    self.handler = win.connect('destroy', lambda w: self.exit())
  File "/usr/games/xword", line 1344, in exit
  File "/usr/games/xword", line 1338, in write_puzzle
    fname = self.get_puzzle_file(self.puzzle)
  File "/usr/games/xword", line 1294, in get_puzzle_file
    return dir + '/' + puzzle.hashcode()
  File "/usr/games/xword", line 314, in hashcode
    m = md5.new()
AttributeError: 'builtin_function_or_method' object has no attribute 'new'

Xword no longer opens any puzzles.. what do I need to do to fix it? A step by step fix would be greatly appreciated. I just upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04. I love my crosswords!!

Thank you in advance.
