Did you make sure the "Recursive" option is checked in the Options
popup?  Assuming it is and the path is right, if it still fails to
search, please submit a bug report from the Help menu and check
on the "Include error log" option.  That might contain some clues
as to what's going on.

(I've just changed the default for Recursive to True since that's
probably what most people expect, but it was False in 2.0b4)

I think you need your path to be /usr/local/zope/sites/plone instead,
at least that should fix the import you list above.  It's going to look
for Products.CMFCore.utils starting from directories on the path so
you don't want the trailing "Products" listed.

You will want to add a few more things like /usr/local/zope/sites/lib/python
to the path so Wing can also find the other Zope internals.

BTW, another way to understand Zope internals is to run in the debugger,
set breakpoints, and go up and down the stack.  This gets you information
about the call relationships very quickly.

If that doesn't help, please let us know.
