If you're having to use `settings/memory/running programs/activate` to
swap the active screen, you probably need a utility like 'PocketNav' to
make it easier.
The IDLE for pocketpc is a bit different from the 'normal IDLE' - and
is developed separately from the actual port of python for windows ce.
If you just run `python.exe`, you should get a python shell.

What do you mean by 'sticky FAQ' - I've not heard that term before ?

Rats.. I can't help on this at the minute. My memory card broke and I'm
waiting for the supplier to replace it. I didn't realise that sys.argv
didn't work - but then I've never tried to use it on my PDA :-)
