I have a patch to silence the exception and I'm running the test suite now.

I'm planning to keep this to a 3.5 fix and not changing the semantics in Python 
3.4 as the fix is a little different from the standard "directory in sys.path 
is invalid" since '' is dynamic and I can see someone relying on the current 
exception bubbling out somehow and not caching the dead directory in 

versions: +Python 3.5
