[Bf-committers] Problem with Python path when using bundle and external Python lilb.

committed fix for site packages, PYTHONPATH not working in windows is
because we intentionally overwrite it - because of a mysterious crash
with debug/win32.

If someone is able to figure why it crashes or confirm the crash is no
more - Im happy to remove the PYTHONPATH overwriting.
