The error is probably in your openerp-server.conf (for example database owner problem)

or ... in your python modules compatibility - psycopg2 module -  in my system  psycopg2/__init__.py has only 169 lines, but in your error is reported in ...psycopg2/__init__.py", line 179

You are a genius :) your comment on DB owner solved a 6 hours long problem.
