I don't, I am very certain of that. I have also used find to make
certain there are no other stray versions of csv.py.

Problem is, python will not load the csv module, since it detects an
error. And since I can not load the module, csv.__file__ will not
work.


This file will work:
-----------------
#!/usr/bin/env python

# import csv

print "hello"
------------------


This file will not work:
-----------------
#!/usr/bin/env python

import csv

print "hello"
------------------


In later case, I get that error about 'module' object has no attribute
'reader'
