Thanks for finding this bug.  I'm not sure about the second chunk of your diff (the one that removes __pycache__).  In the future, it would help to include a unittest case that illustrates the problem.  Here's a patch that includes a test for that specific problem, along with a narrowed down patch.  Can you explain why the other chunk is necessary (preferably with a unittest)?
