[New-bugs-announce] [issue8608] fix_import prefixes "." to already relative imports

New submission from Torsten Marek <shlomme at gmx.net>:

The fixer for absolute -> relative imports prefixes "." to already relative imports, i.e. 

    from . import something

will be converted into 

    from .. import something

if something.py exists. This of course will raise an exception on import or introduce subtle bugs if something exists in ..

I've attached a patch against 2to3 head which addresses this problem.
