I'm sure it does.  That's not what I asked you.

No, I'm asking you -- or rather your admin user -- to invoke the program  
that is giving you grief from the command line, i.e. "python",  
and tell me what happens.  "It doesn't work" won't be considered at all  
helpful; without details we might as well just print out your script,  
throw darts at it, and tell you the problem is where the darts land.

The rest of your answer however suggests that I've fundamentally  
misunderstood what you've said.  Please tell me *exactly* what happens  
when it doesn't "run fine" for your admin user.
