Standard flaw where a file that contains a username and password is written with insecure permissions. This only affects python 2.6 and higher.

I see the vulnerable code in Python 2.3.7, 2.4.6 and 2.5.6, too.

Aha, thanks.  I do see it as well in Lib/distutils/command/register.py
where it offers to save the username/password.
