For regular modules, the initial implementation of bpo-32206 sets __package__ to "module_name" instead of "module_name.rpartition('.')[0]".

This is not correct, and will cause problems for relative imports.

In the backport, I found that `mod_spec.parent` seemed to be the right thing (in at least a few cases). Might that be preferable to `module_name.rpartition('.')[0]`?

OK, just managed to reproduce it.

This appears only when you run a python script as a module. Running a module with  __main__ does not show the issue.

Will get a patch ready

I forget we had mod_spec.parent available to us these days, so yes, we should use that rather than recalculating the parent with str.rpartition.

As Mario noted, we only want to change the behaviour when the executed module is a plain module or submodule, rather than being a package in its own right with a pkg.__main__ submodule (since the current behaviour is correct in the latter case).

Sent a PR for the fix. I'll update PRs for trace. profile does not need it

Thanks a lot for bringing it up Jason!
