New submission from Mark Veldhuis <mv at marvelid.com>:

I changed module A, and then tested module B that imported module A. it
took a while to realise that what went wrong was that the change had not
registered in module B, even when I closed and reopened the window, the
shell etc. I had to quit IDLE and restart before module B imported the
changed module A. In the file enclosed is a step by step version that
isolates the problem.
At the moment I am working through a Python course using IDLE on UBUNTU
Hardy, and it could be this is a beginners error and no bug after all.
