So at the bare minimum, the multiprocessing code should raise an ImportError when it can't find the spec for the module to help debug this kind of thing. Also that typo should get fixed.

Second, there is no way that 'nosetests' will ever succeed as an import since, as Oliver pointed out, it doesn't end in '.py' or any other identifiable way for a finder to know it can handle the file. So this is not a bug and simply a side-effect of how import works. The only way around it would be to symlink nosetests to or to somehow pre-emptively set up 'nosetests' for supported importing.
