I don't think this is normal. I can't think of anything I've done recently that would cause this to happen, although I have done a bunch of things, I can't remember them all. It did work in the past.

I don't have enough points to submit comments, but you may want to keep an eye on this question, which talks about the same problem: stackoverflow.com/questions/9993792/… – hdhondt May 11 '12 at 1:51
    
Thank you, that looks like exactly the same problem as me. – Drew May 14 '12 at 4:15

Looks completely normal to me. It's the command you invoke that receives and interprets your arguments. Apparantly django-admin.py takes exception to your arguments "start-admin" and "batadase".

That exact command has worked in the past. This is just an example, certain other attempts have failed as well (usually python files) – Drew May 5 '12 at 3:33
