The paragraph quoted from your message.
In this message, it is prefixed with ">>> ".

You have release 1.1.
You start working on the next release: 1.2dev-r#####.
Someone fixes a bug in 1.1 and releases 1.1.1.
With quite high probability, the bug fix should go as well into
the 1.2 development.
Thus, the problem you describe (1.1.1 is newer than 1.2dev-r####;
but it treated as older then 1.2dev by 'setuptools')
has an effect only for a very limited time -- the time until
the fix (1.1 --> 1.1.1) went into the 1.2dev release, which
would probably become some 1.2dev-r!!!!!.
