The setuptools source references a "distutils bug" here:

From what I infer from that message, the bug is that 'reinitialize_command' doesn't clear the 'install_lib' property on the 'install' or 'install_lib' commands.

I'm actually skeptical that setuptools even needs to clear the 'install_lib' property on the 'install_lib' command, for as best as I can tell, the install_lib command only ever sets install_dir.

Nevertheless, I wanted to log a ticket to reference in the code to ultimately find a solution rather than a workaround.
