Posting new bugs is great!  Thanks for reporting this.

I'll get this one filed away but it sounds sufficiently weird that it will require some investigation before we know what's actually going on here.

Do you want to help develop Dynamic languages on CLR? (http://members.microsoft.com/careers/search/details.aspx?JobID=6D4754DE-11F0-45DF-8B78-DC1B43134038)

Subject: [IronPython] Intermittent Bug: Loading a py file crashes winforms


Sorry to keep posting new bugs like this. This one's quite a weird one.
I've written a small .py file (attached) that when loading has some
strange errors.

If I type the code in by hand, then it runs no problems. If i drag the
file over IronPythonConsole.exe, then it brings up the "Submit an error
report" message. If i double click the file (so it loads with
IronPythonConsole.exe) it runs fine (although the console window doesn't
disappear when the form closes), and if I open IronPythonConsole and
import the file, it prints out the following.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File H:\IronPython-1.0-Beta5\sample.py, line 6, in Initialize
AttributeError: 'Form' object has no attribute 'ShowDialog'

Hope that's enough detail. The winforms.py file that I'm using is the one
in the templates directory, but I've copied it to the lib directory.
