I've never observed any differences between python.exe and pythonw.exe
other than the lack of a console window in the latter.
For debugging purposes you might want to take a look at the SciTE
editor (at www.scintilla.org, IIRC): when you run a python script from
it (using F5) it uses pythonw.exe to lanch the script, but it *does*
intercept any output from the program, and display it in the output
That should allow you to find out what's going on, at least.
