[Distutils] Regeneration of source manifest

As far as I can tell setuptools does not always regenerate the source
manifest when MANIFEST.in changes, contrary to what the documentation says.
That is, if I add a directive to exclude files with the .txt extension to
MANIFEST.in (after having previously including them), and run the sdist
command, such files are still included.  I have to remove the .egg-info for
things to work as expected. This must clearly be a bug?
