I'm being bitten by this issue:
I'm not sure I agree with Daniel's closing of it so thought I'd ask here...
Am I right in thinking that the general idea is that "the current working directory at the time of invoking a script or interpreter ends up on the python path" or should I be thinking "the directory that a script exists in should end up on the python path"?
If the latter, then what happens in the case of just starting up an interpreter?
If neither, then how come when I have two .py files in a directory, I can import one as a module from the other?
In any case, as a parting comment, http://bugs.python.org/issue1232023 seems to have been committed with no tests and the only documentation being a one liner in the NEWS.txt file. Was there other discussion of this?
(Incidentally, export PYTHONPATH= or its Windows equivalent circumvents whatever the patch was trying to achieve, so the change doesn't seem to make sense anyway...)
