The high number of errors comes from Python's import logic:
when Python should import a module/package (not yet imported),
it looks into each member on "sys.path" for about 6 different potential
filename spellings corresponding to the module -- until it succeeds
or has tried all members. Most such filesystem lookups will fail -
giving a high number of "stat" errors.
