Sorry, that was a sloppy report.  This is a better repro:

$ export PIP_CONFIG_FILE=/dev/null  # just to be sure
python -mvirtualenv outer-env  # using /usr/bin/python(3)
source outer-env/bin/activate
python -mvenv inner-env  # using outer-env's python
source inner-env/bin/activate
python -minspect -d pip

Using base prefix '/usr'
New python executable in /tmp/outer-env/bin/python
