I'm having trouble with a strange AttributeError. I'm using RQ (Redis
Queue) and Django, both of which are new to me, so perhaps they are
Anyway, the traceback looks like:
Traceback (most recent call last):

# circular dependency in imports? No.
# module of same name? No, because __file__ looks correct
# Not in Django's settings.py's INSTALLED_APPS? No, higgins is

# Old .pyc? No, I've removed it and same result

If I sys.stderr.write the module's __file__, it gives a full path that
looks as expected.
If I sys.stderr.write(dir(higgins.models)), it has some of the symbols
from higgins.models, but some of them are missing, including the
function I want. It's as though an old version of the module is being
seen, rather than the current version.
Anyone have any (further) suggestions for me?
