Please take a look at issue #2 - http://bugs.python.org/setuptools/issue2
It's very old, it has a patch that was tested and is marked and
considered critical by several users (7) and still nobody take time to
include the patch in svn.

If nobody can commit this I would like to request a svn account so I
would be able to repair this issue.

I'm having no joy installing the patch [my knowledge of this is practically
non-existent]. Is there any chance that anyone could host the patched source so
I can get hold of it? Aprreciate this is a big ask. My email is jules at
js3d.co.uk. many thanks.
