The solution is to not alter the Python modules search path in the way
you've demonstrated. A Python module that inserts its own search path at
the beginning of the system's list of paths ought to have very (!) good
reason to do so. If it's a Fedora package that does this, file a bug
report. It may append its own path, but inserting or prepending its
path bears a big risk... and in this case, it breaks. ;)
