not working in ActiveState Python 2.1

I have the following simple testcode using (by Daniel
Gindikin), which is parsing command lines:

import os,sys,cmdline

print b
if b:                    
    print cmdline.getIntegerValueOf('-x')

when called with command line ' -x 3'
from a Linux version of Python 2.1 it works correctly. However, using
the same build (ActiveState) under windows NT, the command line option
is not recognized and 'b' has value zero.

Any idea what is going on here?  I think this command line parser used
to work on older windows Python distributions.

Thanks in advance,
