(Unrelated to the main question, but you probably want to use  
os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__)) instead - the above just  
returns the current directory, which might not be the directory containing  
the module)

So mymodule is actually a package. Packages should *not* appear in  
sys.path.
