Thanks for the fast reply, but unfortunately that's not the problem.  
'twisted.py' was just the example minimum file i was using to  
describe the problem, although I clearly should have used something  

Also, I'm pretty sure twistd's -y param simply loads this as a file  
(hence the ability to name it with a .tac file).

My actual app file is called 'twserver.py'. I did try renaming the  
example file I created before sending my previous email, but alas, no
