[PythonCE] Python 2.3.4 Installed to Storage Card

I had the last build of Python 2.3 installed in my storage card - so 
long as python.exe was in the same directory as the '.pyc' files and the 
registry entry was correct it worked fine when double clicking on files.

On python 2.3.4 I get the following import error :

Traceback (innermost last):
exceptions.ImportError: No module named \Storage

The registry entry is (for .py, .pyc and .pyw) :
"\Storage Card\Program Files\Python\python.exe" %1

This is reminiscent of a problem in the last version of pcceshell (which 
it doesn't look like is fixed) :

If there is a space in the pathname then when you double clicked on a 
file - python would die with the error message -
pcceshell needs more than one argument
(or something like that)

The solution was always to use 'open with' and put quotes around the 
name - which was always very annoying. Not that I *ever* bothered to 
look into pcceshell.py to try and fix it.. Whilst we're on the subject - 
it would be really good to get raw_input working again - I think there's 
some stuff about it on the mukworks WIKI :
