The way you invoke your script may be relevant. That is, you might be 
using something like these:

DEFAULT cmd /c c:\python\python.exe my_script.py arg1 arg2
DEFAULT my_script.py arg1 arg2
DEFAULT python.exe my_script.py arg1 arg2

and let's say my_script returns -1; that becomes the return code of 
the Python process, which has to be propagated to the invoking 
cmd.exe, and then propagated to the system() call inside cvsnt (if 
that is how it does the thing).
Depending on the OS and/or command processor, the return value may 
"bubble up" or get lost or get truncated to 8 bits or...
I had some problems like this some time ago, mixed with non-standard 
quoting of arguments, and finally I gave up and wrote all my scripts 
as true executables (Delphi programs). Of course YMMV but I feel this 
is the safest way to guarantee that cvsnt gets the right exit code...
