I don't think so. My guess is that uninstalling __pycache__ from
subdirectories has always been broken --- unless there has been a
behavioral change in recent Python releases that affects the location of
__pycache__ in strange ways.

When running the test suite with Python 2, everything still works (which
is not surprising given that __pycache__ was only introduced in Python

Unfortunately, when I run with Python 3.4, that test
fails both with and without the patch applied, so it is hard to tell
whether __pycache__ handling is broken with that Python release.
