pip installs into WRONG, WEIRD directory ... easy_install works fine. So, I guess I stop using pip?

/usr/bin/python2.7, easy_install-2.7 pip
mkdir ~/lib/python2.7

Now ... to install: (both w/ and w/o the --user or -U arguments)

easy_install-2.7 django-baker
find ~/lib/python* -name \*baker\*

/home/judgej/lib/django_baker.egg/ ... yes!

--vs--

~/bin/pip install django-baker:
find ~/lib/python* -name \*baker\*

/home/judgej/lib/python2.7/home/judgej/lib/python2.7/django_baker/ ... what?

Hello,

If this is consistent when reproducing it with pip, please open a support ticket with us so we may assist troubleshooting it further. Else, you should be able to just move the module into the correct path manually.

This seems to be due to a bug in WebFaction's distutils configuration. They're working to correct it, but for now the workaround is to either use easy_install or possibly build your own Python from source.
