#594: GDAL Python scripts can not be run

 Looks like there is something wrong with GDAL Python scripts (e.g.
 gdal_merge.py, gdal_calc.py etc) setup in OSGeo4W.

 When trying to run any of the Processing tools in QGIS which are based on
 GDAL Python scripts, they fails with message saying that corresponding
 GDAL script is not found. Same happens with trying to run them from the
 OSGeo4W shell directly.

 Here is steps to reproduce using OSGeo4W shell:
 1. open OSGeo4W shell
 2. setup Python by running py3_env.bat
 3. try to execute for example gdal_calc.py with
 python gdal_calc.py
 4. execution failed with error
 C:\>python gdal_calc.py
 (null): can't open file 'gdal_calc.py': [Errno 2] No such file or

 Same error when running gdal_calc.py from QGIS Processing.
