[New-bugs-announce] [issue29351] absolute imports for logging

New submission from Markus Gerstel:

Running 'import logging' causes at minimum 46 failing 'open' and 12 failing 'stat' calls because python looks for packages inside python/Lib/logging which will never be there, in particular: sys, os, time, cStringIO, traceback, warnings, weakref, collections, codecs, thread, threading, atexit.

The impact of this is limited when python is installed locally, but noticeable when run on a networked file system.

How to reproduce: 
$ strace python -c "import logging;" 2>&1 | grep ENOENT | grep "\/logging\/"

How to fix:
Add 'from __future__ import absolute_import' to all files in the logging directory.
A relevant patch is attached.
