Unable to find python on path (~/bin)

Issue #166 on hold

I have my own path with symlinked custom built pythons, linked in ~/bin.

$ cat ~/.bashrc
# Add ~/bin to path
export PATH="~/bin:$PATH"
$ ll ~/bin
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ivo ivo   34 Feb 28 01:09 python2.6 -> /home/ivo/local/py26/bin/python2.6
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ivo ivo   34 Feb 28 01:09 python3.2 -> /home/ivo/local/py32/bin/python3.2
$ which python2.6

Tox can't find these pythons. It's because of a bug in py - https://bitbucket.org/hpk42/py/issue/44/cant-handle-standard-unix-when-using

$ tox -e py26
GLOB sdist-make: /home/ivo/code/pypa/pip/setup.py

Ronny on IRC asked me to file an associated issue for tox as well.
