[TIP] tox/nosetest runs tests fine, but throws 4 ImportErrors, why?

I am using tox and nosetests to run my unittests. For some reason, the tests run fine, but I still get 4 identical ImportErrors (one is shown below).
If I do not set PYTHONPATH to my project path I get the same error with just nosetests. It seems that imp.find_module throws this error because the second argument
(path) is not ' deep'  enough (it is just the expanded form of ~; I used pdb with nosetest to find this out). How do I get rid of this annoying error?
I don't understand why it was working before, but it no longer does. 

Btw, this happens with Python 2.7, 3.3 and Pypy, and I am on Linux debian 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.54-2 x86_64 GNU/Linux.

Thank you in advance!




All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a 

fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
