[Distutils] [setuptools] egg_info and install_requires

I have a setup.py that has some projects in the install_requires list  
that setuptools cannot find yet (I haven't build the eggs yet) and  
noticed something odd. When there is not yet an .egg-info directory  
for my project everything is fine, I can run distutils commands  
(except install of course).

However, when the .egg-info directory is present all distutils  
commands fail, including the egg_info command, because I'm refering  
to a non-existing distribution. Is this supposed to happen?
