run_setup does not behave as advertised if the called script also 
uses run_setup.  This patch should make run_setup re-entrant.

Hi Bob, thanks for the report and patch.  Could you add a test for this behavior?

(This is irrelevant for distutils2, where run_setup is gone.)

To clarify my position: This does not look like a sane use case, but if the code does not behave as documented it’s a bug that should be fixed.  Do you remember how you discovered the bug?

On second thought, I wonder if it’s useful to fix this.  Since there is a bug, are people using the function?  If not, is it worth fixing, since the function is removed in distutils2?

I’ll reopen this report if someone can provide an example that triggers the bug.
