I stand corrected.  :-)
The above is my usual workflow and I never had issues with registering/uploading.  The OPs recorded session with pypi looked as if it had the problem because of the ordering.  Hence my suggestion above.

This is obviously the problem, but it wasn't shown in the recorded session he posted.  As I was quickly skimming through thread, I did not even notice that the source was posted (and did not have time to try it even if I did).

Thank you for researching this.
I'm sure the OP will appreciate your findings as well.

Best regards,
