How to avoid DOS name mangling under Windows 2000

I'm working with Windows 2000 and Windows 2000 Server in a cmd window.
When I invoke a python script without 'python' prefixed on the command
line whose name does not obey the DOS 8.3 syntax the name is mangled
under Windows 2000 but not under Windows 2000 Server in an error
trace. Why? How can I receive an unmangled name under Windows 2000
without using 'python <scriptname>'? I need it for a later import
statement.

Thanks

Reinhard
