  I'm just guessing here, since you have not provided any code as a
clue.  But I bet you've done something like this:

----------------- igor_session.py --------------

class igor_session:

----------------- test_session.py -----------------

import igor_session


  The reason this fails is that in test_session.py igor_session is a
module not a class.  You need to specify what you want out of the
igor_session module like this:

import igor_session

igor_session.igor_session() # call the ctor for the igor_session class
                            # in the igor_session module
