When two files have the same name and the first changes directory to the second, the inspect module can retrieve the source code for the latter incorrectly, so a simple call to inspect.stack() can be incorrect, and will fail if there are less lines in the nested module (foo/bar/ than in the calling module (foo/


(the foo/bar/ need only contain a single line, e.g. print "hello")
