Actually this change broke modulefinder again, it doesn't find 'import
pywintypes' any longer. I think I have to install a new win32all

While I noticed that 'imp.find_module("pywintypes")' finds it, it
doesn't find it in this case: 'imp.find_module("pywintypes", sys.path)'.

Looking into import.c, PyWin_FindRegisteredModule() is only called if
path is NULL.  If I understood Mark correctly, this function will have
to be removed.  Is this correct?
