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.
