Jason, would you mind looking at your fix for the sandbox failure you
have added in r670 to fix #118?
It seems that this code will break if the pywin32 package is not
installed as expected.
Srid, is the pywon32 installed as a zipped egg in your environment ?
if so, could you unzip
it to see if the bug goes away ?
In any case, if pywin32 uses this directory to write files in it, I
don't see how this can work with zipped eggs.
A quick fix is to check if we are able to read the path, and if not
just drop adding this in the sandbox.
