Figured out the solution to the problem. Inspected some python imported
files to check out the module is actually constructed. Turns out
something has been missing. In general I needed this to get it working:

PyObject * const loadedModule = Py_InitModule3( fullname, NULL, "Loaded
module" );
PyObject * const moduleDict = PyModule_GetDict( loadedModule ); //
borrowed reference
PyDict_SetItemString( moduleDict, "__builtins__", PyEval_GetBuiltins() );
PyRun_StringFlags( fileContent, Py_file_input, moduleDict, moduleDict,

The important part are the last two lines. An important module is
lacking the __builtins__ dictionary member so I had to add it.
Furthermore I had to call the string runner with moduleDict both as
global and local dictionary. With that change the virtual script is
properly loaded and working as it should.

Hopefully this works also in Py3 should I switch some time later. But I
guess it should seeing how simple the import now became.

Yours sincerely
