OK, that's a kinda old numpy -- but it's the minimum required by my project. (though I can probably update that -- I"ll do that soon)
So it appears that the test runner is looking in the current working dir (or, I suppose sys.PATH) for packages called tests -- this seems like a broken system, unless you are runing the tests explicitly from teh command line, it shouldn't look in the cwd, and it probably shouldn't ever look in all of sys.path.
BUt my bigger confusion here is -- why the heck is the test runner being run at ALL on a simple import ?!?!?
If this has been fixed / changed in newer numpy's the OK -- I'll update my dependencies.
