I see a few problems here:

1. Normally the addpredict rules in distutils-r1.eclass can prevent this kind of problems:

    # python likes to compile any module it sees, which triggers sandbox
    # failures if some packages haven't compiled their modules yet.
    addpredict "${EPREFIX}/usr/lib/${EPYTHON}"
    addpredict "${EPREFIX}/usr/$(get_libdir)/${EPYTHON}"
    addpredict /usr/lib/portage/pym
    addpredict /usr/local # bug 498232

However, pypy-7.0.0 and pypy3-7.0.0 changed the installation paths to /usr/lib/pypy2.7 and /usr/lib/pypy3.5 respectively, so /usr/lib/${EPYTHON} no longer matches the paths. Maybe it can use some special casing for pypy versions.

That said, I don't think this is the indended use of these rules, so we should probably do something to fix this package as well.

2. The init_cov_core.pth file that cov-core is trying to write seems to be important for certain features. The following message was printed after the failure to write the file:

    Failed to write pth file for subprocess measurement to <THE_PATH>

    Subprocesses WILL NOT have coverage collected.

I guess we should find a way to install the file properly. Not installing the file didn't cause any real problems before though, so maybe the file isn't really necessary.

Some other packages also install a similar file. For example, dev-python/pytest-cov installs pytest-cov.pth, but it uses the destination path properly and therefore doesn't cause problems.

#671236 is related to this bug. (BTW that bug should already be resolved by 47f35700de86b896c91a5431870dd7b798187f5f)

You can actually edit those attributes later.

Same thing happens in dev-python/cov-core-1.15.0 (current stable). It needs FEATURES="-usersandbox -sandbox" to emerge correctly.
