This started because a set of tests in the test suite fail with 3.11.0a3.  They attempt to create a venv in the test, and the test is already running inside a virtualenv.  The venv creation fails, with a reference to a non-existent file.

I wrote the bug about sys._base_executable because that seemed to be the central difference that was causing the problem.  I was not relying on sys._base_executable, venv was.

I will find steps to reproduce that don't reference sys._base_executable if you need them.
