Unfortunately, now you will be 'punished' for releasing pyc.py.  The 
following code does some funny things when compiled:

print "1"
import clr
print "2"
import os
print "3"
print os.getcwd()
import sys
print "4"
print sys.version

This works fine if you launch it as a script with IP2.  You get:

1
2
3
C:\Documents and Settings\LD003\My Documents\Python 
Projects\CompileProblem
4
2.5.0 (IronPython 2.0 Beta (2.0.0.4000) on .NET 2.0.50727.1433)
>Exit code: 0

If you compile it and shove os.py and ntpath.py into the directory it 
lives in (along with the required dll's)....
you get:

1
2

and then the program hangs....eats memory....and eventually dies with a 
StackOverflowException.
if you comment out import os, print "3", print os.getcwd() you get:

1
2
4
2.5.0 ()

not exactly the same result.  For me this is not an urgent fix....for 
other folks....you are warned.

Regards,

David
