I doubt that this is really the problem, at least, I can't
imagine why it would be so. I more suspect a problem with
modtimes not being preserved and/or different timezones
(combined with the way GUSI attempts to convert MacOS's
localtime-based timestamps to unix's GMT-based timezones). But
if it indeed has to do with a newer file that is totally
unrelated to the module being imported then there's a bug in the
Mac import code somewhere.
Could you try running with "trace import" and "also show failed
attempts"? Not sure whether this'll give more information but
it's worth a try.
