*chuckle*  Well I'm going to run around and answer this in all of the  
places I'm aware of that you posted it so that I can 'spread the  
word' so to speak.  There's a known bug with PyAIM (and PyICQ) under  
Windows that no longer occurs involving the following lines in src/ 

#This does not work under Windows, so we're getting rid of it for now.
#if (exe.find("python") >= 0):
#       os.execv(exe, [name, sys.argv[0]]+sys.argv[1:])

There is no actual release of PyAIM that has this fixed yet.  0.7  
will.  In the meantime, comment those lines out and you should be  
good to go.  Note that this bug only occurs under Windows.
