I think I got confused (again) by the difference by setuptools and

setuptools has a 'setup.py test' that installs dependencies and runs

distutils doesn't have a 'setup.py test' at all.

For some reason I thought 'setup.py test' was a distutils thing that
didn't know anything about dependencies, and that people who use it were
used it not changing the environment.

My mistake.

I don't mind that.

This is the Local Descriptor Table, another weird Intel thingy.  Linux only
uses this for some strange applications like Wine.  We don't do anything
here, so they'll get an informative and friendly Segmentation Fault.
