TypeError: unhashable type: 'Path' (Importing any package)

I've got a weird one here. I've setup a mini Django project, and in the urls.py file, if I try any "from package import X", it results in an exception: TypeError: unhashable type: 'Path'

With no imports in this file, it all works perfectly and the server starts etc.

I've never come across this before, although this is the first time I'm doing experimenting with sharing Django code across smaller independent container services.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I see that something around coreapi dies, and no matter what I import, coreapi seems to be there as the last thing trying to import pkg_resources - but I can't figure out why?
