Can you try with setuptools 0.6a1c2? Use:
easy_install.py -Uf http://peak.telecommunity.com/snapshots setuptools
to upgrade. Rebuild and reinstall your project. If it still has a
problem, please let me know. I remember fixing some script-related bugs
between 0.5 and 0.6, so this might be something that's already fixed. If
not, point me to the sources and I'll see if I can reproduce the problem.
