[Tutor] python interpreter vs bat file

Not much more information available.  Have a batch file (eg. 'test.bat') with entries:

python "program a.py"
python "program b.py"
python "program c.py"
python "program e.py"

One of the programs (eg. 'program c.py') fails with a memory error when performing a pickle.dump:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "....py", line 176, in pickleObject
    pickle.dump(self, f, 2)

When the programs are run in the same order from the Python interpreter there are no memory errors.  This has happened before and it seems odd behavior.

Need more information.  Python works on Windows as good as anything 
else.  Maybe even better.
