Thanks for your enthusiasm, and for the feedback.

However, I have tried what you've described above, and had no problem.
further An invalid syntax is usually something thrown by the parser,
way before any JPype-related code sees the commands.

If the problem persists, can you enter a bug report at JPype's
souceforge project page? ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/jpype/ )

I would like to use SF's tracking features to keep everyone up to date
on what is going on. As a matter of fact you'll be able to track each
releases progress by looking at the task list.

Again, thanks for your interest.
