Cannot register dll created using "py2exe --com-dll"

I'm feeling quite dumb this morning.
I'm trying to build a COM server DLL using py2exe and it ain't working.
Here's what ain't working...
setup_dll.py based on py2exe sample:
"""from distutils.core import setup
setup(name="MadeUpName Object Model",
Command line for building dll (N.B. python 2.3 as instructed):
"""c:\python23\python madeupname/setup_dll.py py2exe --com-dll --excludes Tkinter"""
Command line for registering dll:
Result when I try to register dll:
"""DllRegisterServer in c:\pvcs\madeupname\model\dist\application.dll failed.
Return code was: 0x80040201
The winerror.h entry for this says:
// MessageId: CO_E_FAILEDTOGETSECCTX
// Unable to obtain server's security context
#define CO_E_FAILEDTOGETSECCTX _HRESULT_TYPEDEF_(0x80040201L)
But I'm guessing that this is simply a way of saying the I haven't told
pythoncom (via py2exe) which classes to register. I'm looking at the
source and I am trying to work it out but failing :-(
I have tried an exe server, but this does not register either.
Also does anyone know what argument to use to get py2exe to build something
other than "application.[dll/exe]". I thought 'output_base' as an argument
to setup() would do it, but no joy.
If you folks can make me feel even more stupid by pointing out my
obvious mistake, that would make me happy. :-)
Thanks for reading,
