Yes, sorry.

I made this script:

import sys
print sys.path[0]

And here I run it from another directory:

E:\>python e:\test\syspath.py

That works. Now I run it from the same directory, but still with the full 

E:\test>python e:\test\syspath.py

That works too, but look here when I run it with only the filename:

E:\test>python syspath.py

Nothing! This is the problem I have. It think the second and third case 
ought to mean the same.
