Setup.py not respecting package_dir during develop

This is my current project setup:

.
├── README.md
├── build
│   ├── bdist.macosx-10.8-intel
│   └── lib
├── dist
│   └── giordano-0.1-py2.7.egg
├── giordano.egg-info
│   ├── PKG-INFO
│   ├── SOURCES.txt
│   ├── dependency_links.txt
│   ├── not-zip-safe
│   └── top_level.txt
├── requirements.txt
├── setup.py
├── src
│   ├── giordano
│   └── spider
├── test.txt
└── venv
    ├── bin
    ├── include
    ├── lib
    └── share

And this is my setup file:

from setuptools import setup
setup(name='giordano',
  version='0.1',
  packages=['giordano'],
  package_dir={'giordano': 'src/giordano'},
  zip_safe=False)

When I do python setup.py install, I am able to `import giordano` in my code without problems.

However, when I am doing python setup.py develop, this is the console output:

[venv] fixSetup$ python setup.py develop
running develop

writing giordano.egg-info/PKG-INFO
writing top-level names to giordano.egg-info/top_level.txt

writing manifest file 'giordano.egg-info/SOURCES.txt'
running build_ext

Removing giordano 0.1 from easy-install.pth file
Adding giordano 0.1 to easy-install.pth file

Installed /Users/blah/Dropbox/projects/Giordano
Processing dependencies for giordano==0.1
Finished processing dependencies for giordano==0.1

This is what the .egg.link looks like:

/Users/blah/Dropbox/projects/Giordano
.

I can no longer `import giordano` in my code now. 

**If I `touch src/__init__.py`, I am able to `from src import giordano` anywhere outside of this directory. So I am 100% certain that the egg is pointing to here rather than what package_dir specified.**

Any ideas why develop is not respecting package_dir?
