New submission from Ronald Oussoren <ronaldoussoren at mac.com>:

The attached file 'manifest-test.zip' is a small distutils project that demonstrates a problem I have with the sdist command.

The archive contains a directory 'sandbox' that is not mentioned in MANIFEST.in or anywhere in setup.py. When I create an sdist using "python setup.py sdist" the sandbox directory is included in the archive.

This happens with 2.7 on Windows, while 2.7 on OSX does not have this behavior.
