Are you by any change using the '--site-packages' option of py2app? If
so, you run into a (mis-)feature of setuptools: the easy_install.pth
file in site-packages contains an nasty hack that ensures that easy-
installed software is placed as early as possible on sys.path.
You could try running without it, --site-packages shouldn't be
necessary for a self-contained application bundle. In the longer run
it would be nice to change the code that --site-packages injects into
the .app bundle work around this "feature" of setuptools.
