You'd do better to specify just what program isn't maintaining the 
list. PythonWin? (That comes with the ActiveState Python for Windows, 
I believe.) IDLE?

Either way, works for me with www.python.org Python 2.4.1 and the 
version of PythonWin from build 204 of pywin32 extensions.

If no other answers are forthcoming, you might want to try any support 
or user's lists for the ActiveState Python distribution.
