In article <dtu7f2$gst$1 at>, Ant says...

There have been several discussions concerning that practice since then, Ant
(perhaps you missed them? :) ) Many of these discussions were somewhat heated
because the name lookup rules seemed counter-intuitive.   If I recall correctly,
Mango and the original DWT port ran into this issue too.

Walter responded something to the effect that imports were not designed to be
placed in class bodies, so we were "on our own" if we decided to put them there.

Glad you were able to get this fixed, though!  Thanks also to Lars and Tom for
helping out.
