Are you actually running the script from the command line or running
it from PythonWin and entering the command line arguments in the
RunScript dialog?

The later won't work with cmdline.py because it grabs the command line
arguments upon import, and PythonWin will only import it once i.e.
your commandline arguments will be as they were for the first run.

If this is not the case, please let me know because I am using
ActivePython and cmdline.py without any problems.
