After you gave me the blatant hint to look at the system path; the 
problem became obvious. Wing assigns the path of the project file to one 
of the paths revealed by sys.path. I, of course, had put the project 
file in the folder above  my working folder.

Another learning experience.

Thank you for the key that unlocked the obvious.
