Got it working (on a different machine). Looks like it's either a
config problem or an intermitent one. Everything looks great now.
Thanks for all the help.

One further question - another way of doing the same thing (in WSH) is
to assign to the "onclick" property of the HTML document in IE.
Something like

ie.document.onclick = function() { WScript.Echo("Click!") }

Is it possible to do anything like this in Python? If not, can I do
the same thing another way? (I have created ie via
DispatchWithEvents(), but the HTML document is a property of this. Can
I rewrap it somehow, say as
  doc = DispatchWithEvents(ie.document, DocEvents)
