Okay, folks, I confirmed that this was indeed because a package named  
"elisa" was installed on the user's system, and I added this work- 
around to my package's setup.py:


146	try:
147	    _setup(test_suite="pycryptopp.test")
148	except BaseException, le:
149	    # to work around a bug in Elisa
150	    if "test_suite must be a list" in str(le):
151	        _setup(test_suite=["pycryptopp.test"])

This works on both my system (with setuptools 0.7 dev) and my user's  
system (with setuptools 0.6c8 and elisa).

I will try to contact the authors of elisa.
