I look at the code friday night (the file utils.py) and it seems to contains some functions 
to deals with Windows/Unix and some 'HACK' as writen in comments. 

What is the purposeof the function "split(s)"? 

I think that the question/problem is more profond than that this "split()" funtion.

I am developping an application in Python/wxPython that is working on both Linux and Windows.

Wth that experience I will try come back in a few weeks to make a proposal/suggestions.
But does not solve the problem in the mean time. With which version of Python and Windows 
the students are working?

I have tested attached patch (which I hope is the same as the suggested change),
it lead to a complete GUI error. I tried to catch it with a screenshot
but was to
slow. I can try harder if needed.
