Aha!  It just occurred to me that a bug I thought was fixed in 0.6c1 is 
actually only fixed in 0.6c2 (not yet released).

Could you try installing 0.6.c2dev-r50757, via:

     easy_install setuptools==dev06

and see if that fixes your problem?  I think this is an already-fixed 
bug.  I thought it was limited to case-insensitive filesystems (e.g. 
Windows), but it looks like it would also apply to symlinks, and produce 
the results you're seeing.
