Double Clicking on .pyw File Doesn't Work in Windows 7

When I double-click on a file with a .pyw extension, nothing appears to
happen.  Control panel shows that pythonw is associated with this extension,
and if I right-click on the filename, the program suggested to open it is
pythonw.exe.  If I make a desktop shortcut with the target pythonw.exe
myScript.pyw, it works as expected.  Any ideas?
