[wingide-users] Hanging whenever I type "import" !! -- FURTHER FOLLOWUPNigel.Head@esa.int Nigel.Head@esa.int

Continuing the sags of investigating what went wrong I have some further input: After my reported success of yesterday I went back to working on my real problem -- which meant using reportlab. Now, in my case reportlab was installed in c:\reportlab and I therefore had to recreate the "reportlab.pth" file which had got zapped during my python re-install. Lo and behold, as soon as I recreated the file (with "c:\" as the path) inside it the Wing startup became unbearably slow again (I thought it had hung, but in the end I just waited and 2 hours later all was well). Moving reportlab one directory level down (to "c:\rlab\reportlab") and putting "c:\rlab" in the path file restored things to sanity. SO: can it be that Wing is doing some sort of forward looking searching/analysis down the python path ? If so I can understand why having c:\ on that path is a problem, in performance terms, and why the problem I had went away when I reinstalled python (until I got back to real work instead of a toy test case of course).
