The issue is the '..' in your data file names; currently 
setuptools.archive_util refuses to extract files with '..' in their 
path.  I'm going to go ahead and fix this, but even after I do, 
please note that it will continue to be a problem for versions of 
easy_install that are out there "in the wild".
