I noticed two things:

- "unrecognized format in .svn/entries": that's subversion 1.6's new entries
  format that is unrecognized by setuptools 0.6rc9 ("All hail distutils as
  that fixed this bug")

- The "bin directory already exists" error that keeps coming up suggests an
  os.remove (or however that's called) in a teardown method that uses a
  non-windows-friendly path separator.  Just a pure guess :-)
