You're right. I was running the tests on my two Windows Vista
environments, and now I discover the problem only exhibits itself under
Windows. I expanded the packages to my Ubuntu 8.04 box, and after
installing nose (as you pointed out), the tests also ran (minimally) without
I then copied the packages to a brand-new Windows Vista install. I
installed Python 2.5.2, setuptools-0.6c8, and nose 0.10.3. I then installed
myns.projA using develop, and attempted to run "setup.py test" on
myns.projB, and the error did exhibit itself. Additionally, I tested the
sample on Windows XP (Python 2.5.2) and it also exhibits the error.
Thanks to your help, I've further narrowed down the problem.
I have filed a ticket with the nose tracker:
Any further suggestions are always appreciated.

I can't reproduce this using the archive you uploaded. After running
develop on projA, I ran test on projB and got an error message about
nose not being available, so I added tests_require="nose" to projB,
and then I got a run that said zero tests ran.
