On the contrary. When I start that from another directory which
is *not* in the path, I do not see that directory in the sys.path
at all, but merely the directory in which the script itself is
stored. This is the defined behaviour of the Python sys.path
stuff and you must be misinterpreting something.
The current directory is *not* added to sys.path, unless it
just happens that the main script is in the current directory.
