In my original posting I did mention the problem occurs if you install
either through the system package manager. (I think python-setuptools is
the real problem but python-virtualenv depends on python-pip and that
depends on python-setuptools)
This is a serious problem for people trying out Grok, as they might have
this stuff installed that way and are unlikely to dig far enough to
figure out what's going on.
