[Distutils] buildout: trying to test versions/develop interaction

Hi there,

I'm trying to write a test that tests the integration between the 
'versions' line and the 'develop' line in [buildout]. My expectation is 
to see the following behavior from buildout:

if I list a version explicitly in 'versions', and list that package 
under 'develop', I expect it to pick the version listed in [versions] 
and ignore the version under 'develop'.

To verify this behavior, I tried to write a test. Unfortunately the test 
failed, and seems to be preferentially getting the version listed under 

My work is on a branch;


Incidentally, when I try running the tests on trunk (without my 
additions) in Linux, I get a number of test failures. I wonder whether 
this has anything to do with the Windows-compatibility changes that were 
added a few days ago? (which I see in SVN)
