This second one does look odd. But it's very hard to tell what is going on
here. First, I'd try Python 2.3 (and mp 3.1) and see if it behaves

Also, the value of module I think depends on how it is imported, i.e.
using 'from' vs 'import' vs the imp module might give you different
results, and perhaps there is a bug in Python when a module is imported by
more than way it corrupts the value of module...
