From James Lord:

I can write a Python algorithm in the Scripting console and it only needs "from mantid.api import *" as in the online help. If I then try to have that algorithm auto-load on Mantid startup (e.g. View - Preferences - Mantid - Directories - Python Algorithms) I have to make it import several extra libraries such as mantid.kernel, mantid.simpleapi and numpy. Debugging this was not trivial as it means much trial and error, restarting Mantid each time!
