Well, at least you now have a workaround.

That's really strange. I have no idea why that would happen.
There's definitely some kind of hidden global state somewhere.
That mostly confirms my suspicion that the offending rule is
python.require-py. Maybe if you add /debug/ into the call to, it will reveal something:

    local py-ext-alternative = [ $(py-ext-target).select-alternatives
$(property-set) debug ] ;
