comment Setting up drawing order for point shapefile
"I've found that it wasn't possible to trace points" - an option is to use Snapping to make this slightly easier. It still wouldn't be much fun with 5,084 points though...

PS try installing PythonWin from the ArcGIS DVD as it allows you to step through your code in debug mode, to see when the error occurs. I suspect you'll find that the error isn't being thrown by the SelectByLocation line, but by the UpdateCursor (or something else)

Thanks for that - it does the trick. There seems to be a problem with ArcGIS scanning the first 8 rows automatically, though.
