doctest not seeing any of my doc tests

I have a function in my module:
When I run it, it fails to find any of my doc tests, including the tests
in __main__, and in fact it looks like it can't even find my functions
1 items had no tests:
0 tests in 1 items.
0 passed and 0 failed.
The second and subsequent times I call selftest, I get the same result
except that it adds this line to the end:
*** DocTestRunner.merge: '__main__' in both testers; summing outcomes.
I've exited from Python and restarted the interactive interpreter. I've
deleted the module .pyc file. Neither has helped.
I've tried reading over the doctest module to see if there are any hints
as to what's going wrong, but it's quite opaque to me. If there's anyone
out there with a good understanding of doctest, I'd appreciate some
pointers for where to start looking, or otherwise how to fix this problem.
For what it's worth, I'm running
