I don't see how this is eliminating duplicate lines. To me it looks like
it's just copying the contents of capas.txt into unico.txt and adding extra
\n (line breaks), which might be what's breaking your next line.

Also, in your next e-mail, I noticed you're getting carriage returns (line
breaks in your output). Since you're adding those line breaks above, you
want to remove them before using them somewhere else.

p = subprocess.Popen(['C:/Archivos de programa/FWTools2.4.7/bin/ogr2ogr',
line.replace("\n", "") +'.shp', '-where', "\"LAYER='"+ line.replace("\n",
"") +"'\"" , b+'.shp'])

In the code above, I've changed the references to the variable *line* so
that the \n's are replaced by 0-length strings. That should remove them from
the Popen arguments.
