Python: having a file called "" gets stuck installing gardenlinux

Problem description:

When I have a file called, the import-guessing system gets stuck installing a bogus package. Here is what I got when trying to run unit tests:

--> poetry add gardenlinux git-python
Using version ^1.1735.0 for gardenlinux
Using version ^1.0.3 for git-python

Updating dependencies
Resolving dependencies...

It is possible to disable resolve this for Run by adding these lines to the .replit file as described here:

disableInstallBeforeRun = true
disableGuessImports = true

But, this does not seem to affect the Unit Tests button.

Expected behavior:

I love the import guessing feature, but two suggestions (1) maybe don’t guess packages like gardenlinux that seem to be defunct (2) give the user feedback on what is causing the guess.

Actual behavior:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a Python project.
  2. Create a file called
  3. Add import model to the top of
  4. Hit run and it gets stuck, or start unit tests and it gets stuck.
