The significant difference between 

<     os.execl(exe, exe, rswitch, '-s')
>     os.execl(mm_cfg.PYTHON, 'qrunner', exe, rswitch, '-s')

is, that in the former case the python interpreter don't get called
In the original line the interpreter gets called explicit from os.execl.

Seemingly the resulting processes lives in different enviroments.
Depending on the wise how the programm gets invoked.
(At least on my system.)

Do you think so?
