Well, I'm pretty confident this isn't an actually desired behaviour,
so to answer your original question, I'd say "bug" is the more
accurate choice. That said, though... there are a LOT of ways that the
Windows path can fail to pick up the correct 'pip'. Normally
activating a venv should let you use "pip" to mean the right thing
just as "python" does, but maybe something's cached?

Are you doing this in cmd.exe, powershell, bash, or some other shell?
