I've done a little poking around, and it looks like you are correct and I'm wrong. It appears that is or should be a special case.  I've added some people to nosy to see what they think.

Specifically, it appears that if I put a file that should shadow a library module that is imported at python startup time (eg: into my current working directory I still get the from the appropriate lib directory, even though '' is first in my sys.path.  This is not how I thought it worked, but it is my observation.  I tested this on 2.6.6, 2.7.1 and 3.3 tip.
