[Distutils] setuptools problem?

I was trying to install yolk with

c:\python25\python -m easy_install yolk

(on Windows, as you can see).

A yolk.py script is installed in c:\Python25\Scripts, but between each source line
there is an empty line.  In other words, line feeds are doubled each time.
This leads to syntax errors because continuation lines don't work any longer.

It seems easy_install gets the newlines wrong.


PS: This is not the first time I had strange problems with Scripts in distributions
installed by easy_install, but it is the first time I'm reporting it.
