I assume this in on Windows? (because of portable?) Or anything else?

It looks like this is not specific to operon, as exfalso-cmd.exe and quodlibet-cmd.exe are also not responding to command-line arguments for me (the only thing command-line arguments do is make the taskbar entry flash).

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit btw.

Hm, looks like sys.argv isn't set for some reason with Python 3.
