Out-of-date/wrong egg-info would have been my guess (which can be devilishly
hard to find if one is not thingking about it). I had a similar situation
after I copied one egg to extract bits from it into a separate egg (say, I had
egg "foo" which contained foo.bar and foo.baz, and I wanted to move foo.baz
into its own package), but still had the old egg-info lying around (that said
"foo.baz can be found in the foo egg").

Other than the above, I'm sorry, nope.
