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.
