Import warning is a new 'feature' of 2.5. It warns if there are 
directories on sys.path that are *not* packages. I'll refer you to the 
py-dev archives if you want figure out the motivation for that. So, if 
everything seems to work, there's a good chance that nothing's wrong, 
but that your just seeing a complaint due to this new behaviour. If you 
check recent messages on Python-dev someone just posted a recipe for 
suppressing this warning.
