pylint #2473 invoking pylint on __init__.py [resolved]

I am trying to use pylint to check only a __init__.py file.

My experiments (on windows, py24, pylint 0.8):

pylint.bat mypackage.__init__

works. But the following two:

pylint.bat __init__.py
pylint.bat .\__init__.py

check the whole package. (where I would expect to only check __init__).

If ./outside is on the PYTHONPATH then:

pylint.bat .\outside\mypackage\__init__.py

fails with an ImportError, and:

cd .\outside
pylint.bat .\mypackage\__init__.py

works.
