Remove this things in your inherited class

 _name = "purchase.order"

Add purchase in custom module __openerp__.py file

'depends': ['purchase'],

Restart your OpenERP serevr and update or install your custom module in your database.

Hope it works !!

did you completely stop/ start your server? Stop the server then type ps aux | grep openerp or look at your process list in windows to make sure you have stopped all instances of the server.
