import arceditor does not set proper license level

I recently upgraded a system from ArcGIS 10.1 tot ArcGIS 10.3. The system is pointing to a concurrent licence server with Advanced and Standard licenses. In version 10.1, I am convinced that when using the import arceditor before the import arcpy statement (in the standalone IDE PyScripter), would force the license to Standard and not grab the highest available license what import arcpy normally does.


At 10.3 it grabs the Advanced license even though I have the import arceditor statement before the import arcpy statement.

Has anyone else noticed this, or is this just me?


I am not supposed to grab the advanced license and I don't want to create an ARCGIS.opt to reserve the advanced license, which would make it totally inflexible.


Thanx in advance for any insights you may provide...


Kind regards, Xander
