Are you importing FormOne from FormTwo and/or vice versa?

Pythonic namespace collisions are far less likely if you keep things
in their namespaces.  This is another way of saying that "from X
import *" is potentially evil and should be used very carefully.  Try
saying "import FormOne" and then qualify the class as
"FormOne.FormOne".
