I am developing a custom module. Everytime I change anything and restar the server I get this error:

 return self.app(environ, start_response)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/http.py", line 1426, in dispatch
ir_http = request.registry['ir.http']
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/http.py", line 346, in registry
return openerp.modules.registry.RegistryManager.get(self.db) if self.db else None
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/modules/registry.py", line 339, in get
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/modules/registry.py", line 370, in new
openerp.modules.load_modules(registry._db, force_demo, status, update_module)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/modules/loading.py", line 351, in load_modules
force, status, report, loaded_modules, update_module)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/modules/loading.py", line 255, in load_marked_modules
loaded, processed = load_module_graph(cr, graph, progressdict, report=report, skip_modules=loaded_modules, perform_checks=perform_checks)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/modules/loading.py", line 152, in load_module_graph
models = registry.load(cr, package)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/modules/registry.py", line 163, in load
model = cls._build_model(self, cr)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/models.py", line 595, in _build_model
original_module = pool[name]._original_module if name in parents else cls._module
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/openerp/modules/registry.py", line 102, in __getitem__
return self.models[model_name]
KeyError: 'stock.picking'

I have to rename the module folder under /openerp/addons/custom, restart the server, uninstall the module and then I can reinstall it again.

Why is this happening? Is there any information in the error that could be used to debug this?

Hi! Looks like a dependency problem, did you add 'stock' into __openerp__.py depends? If this isnt the problem, you should post the file where you inherit stock.picking, and see if there is anything wrong on it. 

It was exactly the issue you pointed, I just added 'stock' as dependence into __openerp__.py and the issue is no longer there. Thanks Jose it was a really annoying issue.
