Exclamation IDE file path resolution with 'Go To Definition' (bug)

First to say:
IDE warning when a loaded module obscures another module (with same name) on the search path
new middle-click shortcut for Go To Definition option from the context menu

Next: when executing a script, references to imports are solved by
  1. looking in the script's folder
  2. looking in the Vizard library folder c:\Program Files\WorldViz\Vizard5\python\
  3. looking in the Python library folder c:\Program Files\WorldViz\Vizard5\bin\lib\
So far so good.

now for the part: when invoking the Go To Definition command, this search path seems not to be used. More precisely, the file's folder is not searched.
[I found this as, for the moment, I have to obscure the shipped vizproximity module with my fixed variation. And when going for a definition, the IDE would always open the library file, and not mine]

Best Regards, Walter
