That's odd.  It seems to work for me whether I set PYTHONPATH in
Project Properties environment _or_ in the Python Path property
in Project Properties and I'm not seeing how it could fail easily.
This is certainly a pretty basic thing that should be working!

Could you try it in a new project and do Step Into some file
and see what sys.path is in the Debug Probe?  If it's wrong,
can you then submit a bug report from the Help menu with
the error log included (it will show the path used when
you started).
