I'm using 0.6c12dev (according to the traceback).

Similar error here with easy_install:

> does distribute work for this as well?

I'm not completely clear how to test this. I'm working in a virtualenv which has been 'bootstrapped with the python bootstrap.py -d' option - does that make setuptools a distribute fork?

Thanks for your help,

Jon
