Mock SCM Issue

I am trying to build an RPM with Mock via a git repo. It seems like I
run into an issue with the Sources option inside my spec file:

DEBUG: Initializing SCM integration...
DEBUG: SCM checkout command: git clone git://gitrepo reponame
DEBUG: SCM checkout post command: git checkout master

ERROR: iteration over non-sequence
Traceback (most recent call last):

   (options.sources, options.spec) = scmWorker.prepare_sources()
 File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/mockbuild/", line 111,
in prepare_sources
   for (filename, num, flags) in rpm_spec.sources:
TypeError: iteration over non-sequence

My spec file is a normal spec file that can be built via Mock when not
attempting to use it from Git. My Mock version is 1.0.22 from EPEL on
a CentOS 5 box.

Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong?
