nested package == subpackage

Based on my limited experience with subpackages* plus reports on this
list about problems, such as yours, I have concluded that subpackages
are an attractive nuisance that are generally more trouble than they are
worth. I suggest you consider sticking with your original flat (no
subpackage) design. (But maybe someone knows better than me how to make
subpackages work ;-).
* In my current project, I started with all modules in subpackages but
have since moved them into the package and deleted the subpackages.
