test.py contain tests that launches multiple multiprocessing.Process to test diffferent module in parallel, but always fail to launch child processes for test with AttributeError. I spent lots of time trying to figure out why my code don't work. I also tried to use the examples from http://docs.python.org/dev/library/multiprocessing.html#the-process-class and they also gives AttributeError when launching child process. in the end, I figured out it's because Pythong file test.py has same name as package TEST. change test.py to test_all.py and everything worked.

It looks multiprocessing import defaults to import package, not the parent file when file name without suffix is same as package.
