Description Daniel Walsh 2003-01-06 12:10:37 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021202

Description of problem:
If I write a python script like the following
cat t.py
import sys
print sys.argv
import gtk
print sys.argv

Then run it with the following arguments
 ./t.py --name=xyz --who cares
['./t.py', '--name=xyz', '--who', 'cares']
['./t.py', '--who', 'cares']

The --name argument dissappears.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.See description

Expected Results:  --name should still be an argument.
