Version strings in executable created by Py2exe

Running with Python 2.2. I've created myAppName.exe using Py2exe, with
the "version_companyname" and "version_legalcopyright" specified in
the setup .cfg file as follows:

##########################
[py2exe]
.
.
.
# version information
version_companyname = My Company Name BLAH BLAH
version_filedescription = My File Description BLAH BLAH
version_fileversion = 0.0.2
version_legalcopyright = BLAH BLAH
version_legaltrademarks = None
version_productname = py2exe myAppName
version_productversion = 0.0.2
##########################

Using Windows Explorer, when I check "Properties" on the resulting
.exe file, I get:

------------
File Version: 0.0.2.0
Description: My File Description BLAH BLAH
Copyright:

Company Name:
Language: Language Neutral
Legal Trademarks:
Original Filename: myAppName
Product Name: myAppName
Product Version: 0.0.2
------------

Why are the version_companyname and version_legalcopyright strings not
installed for the "Company Name" and "Copyright"?
