after some trial and error it only appears to break for 3rd party packages (all 20 or so i happened to have installed), whereas everything i tried importing from the standard library worked fine

>>> __import__('requests.', fromlist=[u'get'])
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: Item in ``from list'' not a string

>>> __import__('os.', fromlist=[u'path'])
<module 'os' from '<snip (virtualenv)>/lib/python2.7/os.pyc'>
