Version: 1.24.2+dfsg1-1
Severity: normal


Since I installed the package yesterday, every user
starting a shell is greeted with

ERROR: Virtual environments directory '/home/shai/.virtualenvs' does not exist.

(where 'shai' is the user name).

This includes users who have absolutely no interest
in virtual python environments.
