Fabio, thanks for your reply. I'm using PyDev version 2.7.0.2013032300, the one who comes with Aptana Studio plugin for Eclipse. Here is Eclipse output:

/media/arquivos/Documentos/Programacao/Source/workspace_linux/Testes em Python/src
/media/arquivos/Documentos/Programacao/Source/workspace_linux/Testes em Python/src/pip_eclipse
/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages
/usr/lib/python27.zip
/usr/lib64/python2.7
/usr/lib64/python2.7/lib-dynload
/usr/lib64/python2.7/lib-old
/usr/lib64/python2.7/lib-tk
/usr/lib64/python2.7/plat-linux2
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/PIL
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/wx-2.8-gtk2-unicode
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages
/usr/local/lib64/python2.7/site-packages
/usr/local/lib64/python2.7/site-packages

And here is Python shell output:

/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages
/usr/lib/python27.zip
/usr/lib64/python2.7
/usr/lib64/python2.7/lib-dynload
/usr/lib64/python2.7/lib-old
/usr/lib64/python2.7/lib-tk
/usr/lib64/python2.7/plat-linux2
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/PIL
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/wx-2.8-gtk2-unicode
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages
/usr/local/lib64/python2.7/site-packages

They are almost exactly the same, the only difference is that Eclipse includes the directory I'm running the script and print twice the last 2 directories.
