FillSinks not working properly in Python or command line?

I am having issues running the ArcHydro FillSinks tool through a Python script or the command line window.  The process completes, but there is nothing filled in the output grid.  If I run the same data through ArcToolbox or the ArcHydro menu (using FillSinks) the output is correct and sinks are filled as identified by the IsSink field.

I have tried this on other computers in the office with the same result.  I am running ArcGIS 9.3.1 (build 3500), ArcHydro 1.3.  Keep in mind FillSinks is working through ArcToolbox so I???m assuming it is not a problem with my input data and that my Sinkpoly layer is setup correctly.

Has anyone else encountered this?  Is there a solution?
