Did you rebuild TVTK after upgrading to 4.4.2?  If you did not, then
remove the tvtk_classes.zip file and rebuild TVTK like so:

 python setup.py build_ext --inplace

You should have gotten warning messages if you did not do this and
imported TVTK.  Also, did you build the Hybrid classes when you built

Yes, that is unnecessary.  So that can be ignored.  The ancestor
caching should I think go away when you rebuild TVTK.

Sorry, who is complaining about different versions?

Thanks for the patient testing.
