[Tutor] Have any idea why I do not have access to MY files?

These are excution functions: system() and popen(). For the same file
with the former I can see the contents:
>>> result = os.system('cat new2text.py')
y = 0
print 'y is currently:', y
while y < 8:
y += 1
print 'incrementing y to: ', y
whereas, if I try to read it - suddenly it does not belong to me!
>>> f = os.popen('import2.py -a')
>>> sh: line 1: ./import2.py: Permission denied
But if I do this, its mine!
>>> result = os.system('ls -l new2text.py')
-rw-r--r-- 1 prime_dev prime_dev 93 Jan 26 11:09 new2text.py
Adding a full path has no effect, with popen() still claims I have no
Thanks for any insights!
