[issue14547] Python symlink to script behaves unexpectedly

New submission from Johannes Buchner <buchner.johannes at gmx.at>:
If I have a script
and create a symlink to it, called barhere.py
ln -s foo/bar.py barhere.py
when I run it, it behaves unexpectedly, specifically it behaves differently than if I had copied it here. It prefers to import baz from foo/baz, not from the current folder.
Apparently Python (2.7.2-r3) handles symlinks differently than just looking at the content (everything is a file philosophy in UNIX).
