[IronPython] Two Problems with sys.argv and compiled scripts

Problem #1
I know this is a know issue, but my google-fu has been able to uncover the
solution.  When I compile my script into an exe , sys.argv get sets to ' '.

Using SharpDevelop and Ironpython 2.0.1

import clr
import sys
import System

if __name__ == 'Program':
        print "sys.argv = ",sys.argv
    except System.Exception, e:
        print e

yeilds output of
C:\Program Files\IronPython 2.0.1\Samples\pyc>Program.exe fred
sys.argv =  ['']

instead of the expected

Problem #2:

If I drag and drop a file onto the exe, I get a exception message that I
can't see.  In IronPython 1.0, the dropped file would populate sys.argv

Hopefully someone can answer or direct me to better source.
