Well, okay, maybe not quite that. Anyway, I was able to confirm the
problem after doing a more insulated install, and the attached diff
against pkg_resources.py fixes it.
It would be nice if there was a require-and-find method, whenever I want
to get a distribution I find I have to do:
dist = pkg_resources.working_set.find(pkg_resources.Require('Package'))
at least that's the best combination I've figured out so far.
