FWIW, I found a workaround. The remote machine had setuptools-0.6c11-py2.6.egg, the local machine setuptools-0.6c9-py2.6.egg. Reverting to c9 prevents Carbon to be loaded with pkg_resources, which in turn enables daemonisation. The child happily runs twisted and quartz.

I'd still be interested to see how twisted / daemon / OSX API  is supposed to work with setuptools c11. But I'm happy I can continue.
