New submission from Jason R. Coombs <jaraco at jaraco.com>:

It appears that distutils isn't loading the authentication information from .pypirc. I ran this test on Python 3.2 64-bit on Windows.

I have a valid .pypirc that works in Python 2.7:

C:\Users\jaraco\projects\hgtools> cat C:\Users\jaraco\.pypirc

index-servers =

username: jaraco
password: omitted

I tried adding repository=http://www.python.org/pypi in [pypi], or supplying -r http://www.python.org/pypi, but that had no effect.

I tried adding -r pypi, but that elicited a new error.
