Several possibilities:

  *  You get an "xml" from a different position than you

     You can find out via "xml.__file__".

  * Your "xml" lacks an "__init__.py".

    In this case, it is not viewed as a Python package
    (with subpackages and/or modules)

  * The "sax", "dom", ... folders lack "__init__.py"
