I am sorry, I am the one to blame for this. I removed the offending
code - you should make sure that you have updated numpy correctly (the
revision 6685 has already the buggy code removed). As it introduced a
bug in numpy.distutils, you should make sure which numpy you are using
to build other extensions. This is a numpy problem at root, but I
can't really help you for virtualenv - they do make some import magic
which may make the problem more difficult to track down.
