If sys.path does not have '.' or '' in it, then Python won't look in the
current directory.  It seems if you set Python Path in Wing's Project
Properties, it will omit '.' by default.  Hmm, I'm not quite sure why
but this info should let you work around this problem.

The new path is added to the default Python Path as determined by
querying the version of Python you are using.
