Importing some python modules in script cause problem when publishing to arcgis server

My organization just been equiped with ArcMap and ArcGIS Server and I already encountered problem when trying to publish python script as geoprocessing services when some python modules are imported


Those problematic python modules I have encoutered so far are urllib2 and uuid


If you do


import urllib2 or import uuid , your script cannot published on the server, the publishing tool go idle and you have to kill the process.


But, if you do from urllib2 import * or from uuid import * , your script can be published.

This workaround can be problematic if classes or method in two modules have the same name.


Is this a problem ESRI is aware of? Why those particular modules are causing this error?
