I see in the archives that this has been reported before, and I can 
verify that the attached patch does fix the problem for me.  Basically 
what is happening is that the launcher is trying to execute python with 
the "#!" still in the name.  I verified this by rebuilding gui.exe 
without -mwindows arg so it would still be a console app so I would see 
the failure message.  It printed this:

"Could not exec #!c:\TOOLS\python25\pythonw.exe"
