Aww, terribly sorry. Should test any code that I post.
(I called the test script "wait.py" on my system, that's
why it worked here, locally)

Here's a fixed version:

import time

def foo():
     # idle wait loop
     time.sleep(0.5)
def bar():
     # busy (CPU) wait loop
     s=time.time()
     while time.time()<(s+0.5):
         pass

def test():
     for i in range(10):
         foo()
         bar()

if __name__=="__main__":
     import hotshot, hotshot.stats
     import profile, pstats

     print "HOTSHOT profiling..."
     prof = hotshot.Profile("wait.prof")
     prof.runcall(test)
     prof.close()
     print "PROFILE DONE"
     stats = hotshot.stats.load("wait.prof")
     stats.strip_dirs()
     stats.sort_stats('time', 'calls')
     stats.print_stats(40)

     print "Normal profiler..."
     profile.run('test()', 'wait.prof')
     print "profile done"
     stats = pstats.Stats('wait.prof')
     stats.strip_dirs()
     stats.sort_stats('time', 'calls')
     stats.print_stats(40)
