i gathered so much, this was just a side note. the only thing i noticed
was that i got some example services i did not have when putting the
data dir in a separate place.

it needs to be there if you want any other place than
/var/www/.python-eggs (writeable) for kforge in general.

coincidentially i was looking at the file after i unzipped the egg. this
prints the egg cache i have set in the vhost config, in my case /tmp:
Exception: Trac egg cache: /tmp
(if i leave out setenv, it defaults to www-data's home/.python-eggs)
i am not a python coder, so forgive if i am wrong: the egg must get
unzipped initially, or modpython_frontend.py would not be available.
it makes me think that unzipping is not the problem after all, but
rather that it is attempted twice?
