First, ensure that you don't have a file named grass.py in the current
directory (e.g. ensure that the swig/python directory isn't the
current directory).

Python always checks the current directory before $PYTHONPATH, so it
gets confused if the current directory contains a module with the same
name as a package.

I'm wondering whether grass.lib.grass (i.e. the bindings for libgis)
should be renamed (to e.g. gis, general, or core) to avoid confusion.
