Sounds more to me like the PYTHONPATH is not setup correctly.  The
reason it works the 2nd time is that python has compiled the module
into a .pyc in the current directory and now doesn't have to go look
though PYTHONPATH to find the module.

Modules either need to be in the current directory, have the proper
path to them specified, be in PYTHONPATH or be placed in the default
locations under the python tree.

I don't see any difference between this and having your include or
library paths set properly in "C".  I don't know of any language that
will go searching your entire hard drive looking for files when it
can't find them where it expects them.
