Probably you know already. That's a (linux) bug in the python

Could you clearify why the package I built works then? That's the great
mystery I suppose ;)
Because UNIX built packages work on UNIX and Windows. But Windows built=
packages only work on Windows.

This email contains the explanation -- it's a bug in distutils/setuptools:

Note that the latest setuptools release (setuptools 0.6c7) does NOT
contain the fix.

So let's hope there will be a release which fixes this soon. This is very disturbing. And meanwhile we should not make releases on windows, should we.
