We diagnosed this with further private emails and for the record
I post the outcome here:

Wing 3.0 beta1 and earlier don't set up the run environment for
tests correctly.  We'll fix this in beta2.  A work-around in
beta1 is to set PYTHONPATH environment in Project Properties
(in the Environment field, not Python Path field).  However,
other things like run directory don't have an easy work around.
