You're welcome. I would have never found this if I hadn't had a
heightened awareness of the sys.path_importer_cache variable recently,
due to implementing a zipimport.py for Google App Engine. :-)

I can try looking for a fix later today (in a few hours). A very crude
fix would be to just remove all keys that have NullImporter values
from that variable just before attempting to import the module that
was just built. I'm hoping for something subtler though; I wonder if
there's an identifyable point where the lib directory got created.
