I assume that you are running the test some way other than using 
"make test."  It seems that make test executes python this way --
PYTHONPATH= ./python
-- which causes the current directory to be added to the path.
If you run python without having the current directory on your path
test_import file fail.

Unless you are having a different problem, this isn't important enough
to fix in 2.0c1, although it seems good to fix for 2.0 final.


PS We have left GC turned on by default in 2.0c1 and plan to do the
same for 2.0 final.
