[Distutils] sdist command doesn't include data files

I'm experiencing a problem when using setuptools (0.6c5) to generate a
source tarball, using the 'sdist' command. What happens is that data files
(PNGs) are omitted even though I include them in package_data (keyword to
setup), and they are correctly included when installing. Is it the intended
behaviour of 'sdist' to ignore package_data, or is this a bug?
