Subject: [Boost-build] boost regression tests fail with python-2.7.14

If I build boost, the regression tests fail for me with python-2.7.14:

cd tools/build/test
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "", line 9, in <module>
     import BoostBuild
   File "/tmp/boost/boost_1_66_0/tools/build/test/", line 8,
in <module>
     import TestCmd
   File "/tmp/boost/boost_1_66_0/tools/build/test/", line 62, in
     import shutil
   File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 16, in <module>
     import zlib
   File "/tmp/boost/boost_1_66_0/tools/build/test/", line 11, in
     t = BoostBuild.Tester(arguments=['toolset=mock',
'--ignore-site-config', '--user-config='], pass_toolset=0)
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'Tester'

If I revert to python-2.7.13, all tests pass.  I do not know enough about 
python to determine if the problem is in boost or python.
I had the same results for boot-1.65.1 and boost-1.66.0.
If it helps, the python release notes are at
