    Thanks for the report.

    I'm able to reproduce this problem, but only if I run ' build' first, in which case the error message also appears.

    It appears as if the command still runs. Since this appears to only be an issue on older versions of Python, doesn't seem to have any bad effects, and is likely to be resolved by a unified Python 2/3 version, I'm going to mark this as won't fix.

    If it turns out this issue has serious impact on production systems, please do re-open or provide more detail about the impact.
