Circular import problem

I'm going quite nutty here with an import problem. I've got a fairly
complicated program (about 12,000 lines in 34 modules). I just made
some "improvements" and get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/mma", line 55, in <module>
File "/usr/local/share/mma/MMA/main.py", line 33, in <module>
File "/usr/local/share/mma/MMA/docs.py", line 34, in <module>
File "/usr/local/share/mma/MMA/grooves.py", line 41, in <module>
File "/usr/local/share/mma/MMA/auto.py", line 35, in <module>
File "/usr/local/share/mma/MMA/parse.py", line 2052, in <module>
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'docs'
I can fix this by deleting a line in docs.py. Just take out the
"import MMA.grooves" and all works. What I really don't get is that in
the middle of this module which is now NOT loading "grooves.py" I have
a command to access a function in that module and it works.
Yes, grooves.py has an import docs.py. And there are lots of other
such imports in the program.
So, I have to assume that the error is being generated by some other
modules loading in the grooves.py stuff ... but really have no idea.
Is there anything I can do to trace though this and get it working
Oh, this is python 2.5.1 on Ubuntu Linux.
