This is not true. Please don't spread it, and I'd appreciate it if
you'd kindly issue a retraction in any other forum where you've
spread it. Thanks.

Did you try asking for an *exact* version of setuptools with '=='
(not using '>=' or leaving off a version)?

Have you tried requesting an exact version number of setuptools?
(e.g. setuptools==0.6c11 or setuptools==dev06)
(Distribute uses a hack of pkg_resources to pretend that it satisfies
requirements that specify "setuptools". However, I don't think it
fakes what *version* of setuptools it pretends to be.)
