What happens when you run this little program:

import time, sys

print "ONE",
print "\rTWO",

The idea is that it should print ONE, flush it, sleep .5 sec so 
that you can see 'ONE', then return to start of line, print TWO, 
flush it so you can read it, and sleep another 0.5 sec.

NOTE comma after print statement.

Does that work for you?
