All's in the title: "pth files in site-packages of venvs are executed twice".  For example, the following code sample prints "1" twice.

python -mvenv /tmp/tmpenv
echo 'import os; print(1)' >/tmp/tmpenv/lib/python3.6/site-packages/foo.pth
source activate /tmp/tmpenv

This behavior is different from the one for a pth file in a non-venv site-packages (either the syswide prefix, or the user prefix), which is only executed once.
